November’s Leonid meteor shower will reach it’s peak tonight with the moon in a waxing crescent phase and setting early in the evening, to provide moon-free skies after midnight when the most meteors typically fall. In a dark sky, with no moon, you should be able to see up to 10 to 15 meteors per hour at the peak. These meteors are bright and among the fastest moving, travelling at speeds of 71 km per second.
