We may be in for

Filed under:General — eric @ 1:17 am

We may be in for quite treat this week as the Leonid meteor shower may be a storm. The shower peaks every 33 years as the parent comet orbits the sun, and this is the year. Due to quirks in orbital mechanics, it may be the last storm for over 100 years. The peak should be Wednesday evening at 9pm eastern looking to the east, though the best viewing will be in the Middle East. Note all the qualifiers — predicting these things are very, very tricky. Still, I’ll be outside each evening for the rest of the week, hoping to watch a storm.
