Night owls and early risers, budget in some time to look up in the sky tomorrow morning to catch a glimpse of the annual Leonid meteor shower. The shower " is expected to put on a normal, weak showing this year of about 18 meteors per hour from dark skies," notes the Griffith Observatory's Sky Report. "The best time to look is between moonset (2:40 a.m.) and dawn on Wednesday morning, the 17th. Recline while watching, and face upwards toward the east." Enjoy the show!
