Are you a night-time star gazer? Then you’re in luck this weekend. The annual Leonid meteor shower will peak late tomorrow night(Saturday night) into early Sunday morning. Astronomers say you should see an hourly rate of 10 to 15 meteors. The shower should be at its best in the three hours between moonset and the beginning of Sunday’s dawn. For the best effect, get away from city lights and don’t even look at any light source like a phone or any type of screen for an hour before. From the info I found on-line moonset begins about 1:30 AM our time!
