The Leonido meteor shower will peak in the early hours of November 17th.
How to see
Unfortunately, in the heat of the night, the moon is in a convex phase, i.e. a large part of the moon is visible. The bright light makes it difficult to see the meteor stretching across the sky.
To see the best conditions, go to a dark, lightless area. According to Ertsky, the moon-covered sky is ideal. If the moon is visible, wait until dawn and look for meteorites, because at that time the moon will disappear in the evening, Ertsky said.
If there is dense cloud cover, you will not see anything. “The clouds will spread across the Great Lakes and the Midwest and extend into the central plains at night until Wednesday morning,” said CNN meteorologist Monica Jared.
The sky in the south will be clear. From west to west of the Rocky Mountains. And northeast along the coast.
