Will Massachusetts See The Leonid Meteor Shower?

The Leonid meteor shower is set to reach its peak on Saturday, November 16th.

The shower is caused by debris from the comet Tempel-Tuttle, which orbits the sun every 33 years.

The Leonids are known for their bright, fast-moving meteors, which can leave long trails in the sky.

Massachusetts is expected to have clear skies on Saturday night, which should make for good viewing conditions.



However, the peak of the shower is expected to occur during the early morning hours, so viewers may need to stay up late or wake up early to catch the best show.

To see the Leonids, find a dark location away from city lights and look towards the constellation Leo.

While the Leonids are not the most active meteor shower of the year, they are still a popular event for skywatchers.
