Best Viewing Spot for the LEONID Meteor Shower | What is Leonid Meteor Shower

Leonids is considered to be the most spectacular meteor shower which is also known as the King of Meteor Showers. This kind of meteor shower appears on November and is best seen on November 17. It produces more than 500 meteors an hour.

It is expected that the moon will not be visible during the Leonid meteor shower so we will have a better view of the falling stars since it will be darker.

According to NASA, we will have a shower of 20-30 meteors an hour this year. Best time to watch it in USA is after 1:30 am EST.

Best viewing spot is predicted to be Asia. For more information, see the NASA Website which gives view spots for the Leonid Meteor Shower.
