That night, earthlings will be able to see another space phenomenon — the Leonids meteor shower reaches its peak. Astronomers claim to see the meteors can be anywhere in the Land. Best of all they are visible on 17-18 November. At its peak in the sky you will see about 15 meteors per hour, according to Ukrainian news.

Starfall is formed due to the fact that the Earth passes the debris of comet Tempel-Tuttle, which when entering the atmosphere burn up and form flashes of light. The maximum intensity of the Leonids reach once in 33 years. The last time this happened in 2001.

The name of the meteor shower comes from its radiant — where the sky visually appear burning particles — the constellations of Leo (eng. Leo). However, to spot the meteors as you can in a region of the constellation, and in other parts of the heavenly space.

We will remind, on the night of October 22, the Terrans were able to observe peak activity of a Meteor shower orionids, and in early October, the Draconids meteor shower.
