November’s wonderful Leonid meteor shower happens every year around November 17 or 18, as our world crosses the orbital path of Comet Tempel-Tuttle. Like many comets, Tempel-Tuttle litters its orbit with bits of debris. It’s when this cometary debris enters Earth’s atmosphere and vaporizes that we see the Leonid meteor shower. In 2018, the peak mornings of the shower are expected from midnight to dawn on Saturday, November 17 and Sunday, November 18. Although a bright waxing gibbous moon will be out for some of the night on the peak dates, try watching this shower during the predawn hours, or after the moon has set.

When should you watch for Leonid meteors in 2018?
Knowing what time to watch is easy. As with most meteor showers, the best time to watch the Leonids is usually between the hours of midnight and dawn. The expected peak morning is Saturday, November 17 or Sunday, November 18. That’s the mornings (not the evenings) of November 17 and 18.

The Comet Swift-Tuttle, which was first spotted in 1862, is thought to be roughly six miles across.

Since its first official sighting in the 19th century by Louis Swift and then by Horace Tuttle three days later, this comet hadn't been seen again until 130 years later when its closest pass with Earth occurred in 1992.

It is estimated that at the most recent pass, the comet was a mere 110 million miles from the planet.

It won't be seen again until 2126
