The Leonid Meteor Shower
The annual November late night sky-show caused by the Leonid Meteors is coming up on November 17-18, 2001.
Scientists David Asher and Robert McNaught expect that 2001 will be a good year for viewing the meteors as the new moon will be only 3 days old, making it a very dark sky, good for stargazers. The Leonids are the dust left over from Comet Tempel-Tuttle in 1866.
