Coming to Tonight & # 39; s Sky: The Leonids


If you've been over Dancing With the Stars for at least a dozen years, the actual stars are offering you some alternative Sunday night entertainment. Leonid meteor shower – so-called because it appears to originate in the constellation Leo – will peak overnight and clock in at about 15 meteors per hour, reports CBS News. The show starts shortly after midnight and will continue until dawn. CBS recommends that you find a dark easterly position and give your eyes at least half an hour to adjust. Potentially partially destroying the show: The Moon, which is 80% lit. If it's too cold where you are, NASA has a livestream. Next up: The Geminids on December 1
