A Night of Shooting Stars – On November 18 to 19, Earth slams into two Leonid dust trails. The first was shed by Tempel-Tuttle in 1767, seven orbital revolutions ago. The second dates from 1866, four revolutions ago.
Meteors from the 1767 stream will peak around 04:00 Universal Time (UT) on November 19. To convert UT to EST, subtract 5 hours, changing the date if necessary. Subtract 6 hours for CST, and so on. This works out to 11 p.m. EST on the 18th.
So, I have to get up at 4am. I’m going to be a bit tired at work tomorrow!
