The Leonids appear in the constellation of Leo and produce about 40 meteors per hour at their peak on November 17th and 18th. This year there will be dark skies promising a good show. The best time to watch is after midnight. The Leonids are best known for having bright 'fireballs' which punch into the atmosphere with 'the kinetic energy of a car hitting at 60mph'
