Quote of the Month

"The most exciting phrase to hear in science,
the one that heralds new discoveries,
is not 'Eureka!' but 'That's funny ...'"

Leonid Meteor Shower Will Peak Soon!

The 2013 Leonid meteor shower will peak on the morning of November 18th. It will be visible around the world, with 15 to 20 meteors per hour streaking across the night sky in average. Unfortunately, this shower will occur just one day after a full moon, so it may be difficult to observe the fainter Leonids. As in previous years, I recommend visiting Spacedex for tips, tricks, and to find out about optimum viewing conditions in your area.
