Set your alarm: Leonid meteor shower peaks tonight11/16/2012
If you happen to be awake before dawn on Saturday morning, you'll want to take a look out the window: The Leonid meteor shower should be at its peak. The meteors are actually bits of comet debris that burn up in our atmosphere as we pass through the tail of a comet known as 55P/Tempel-Tuttle. While the Leonid meteor shower isn't the brightest one of the year — in fact, the Geminids, coming on Dec. 13, are brighter and more plentiful — they should still put on a pretty display, one best enjoyed outside of cities and as far as possible from artificial lights.
