2010 Leonid Meteor Shower Peaks Now!

The 2010 Leonid Meteor Shower is peaking right now! This year won’t be as intense as previous years with only 15-25 meteors an hour expected from experts. I remember the Leonid Storms of the late 90’s into the 3rd millennium were insane! The conditions in Southeastern Pennsylvania will be excellent!!! Despite 20-40mph winds and some chilly temps, there should not be a cloud in the sky. Look southeast in the dark early hours before dawn. The moon will have set allowing better viewing of the faint meteors. Here is a photo I took this August in Hawaii of the Persied Meteor shower! 120 meteors per hour!
