2018 Leonid Meteor Shower

   The annual Leonid Meteor Shower this year will not be a good one for seeing any Leonids as the Moon will be phasing from waxing gibbous into waning gibbous through the peak date, after midnight November 17th (early morning hours of the 18th), and following week. As each day passes the Moon will also be further east and encroaching the skies occupied by the constellation Leo the Lion.
   The Leonids radiate outward from the area of the constellation Leo the Lion most recognize as a ‘backward question mark’ shape. This part of the sky rises after midnight local time.
