Leonid Meteor Shower 2017: When and Where to Watch in UK

Leonid Meteor Shower 2017: When and Where to Watch in UK

Reportedly, during cloudless weather, after midnight in the Eastern sky, anyone will be able to watch the meteor shower.

The Leonids can be highly intense, but this year is set to be a fairly civilised affair, with a mere 10 to 15 per hour, as the Earth moves through the debris stream of the comet Tempel-Tuttle. This mostly happens thanks to the incredibly high speed at which the particles collide with Earth.

Optimal viewing conditions will give star gazers the opportunity to view this year's Leonid meteor shower this weekend.

The best time to see the Leonids will be late Friday evening and into the early morning hours before dawn.

Astronomers say there's no need for special equipment to see this meteor shower-just lie down on the ground and look directly up at the sky, between the East and the point above you. The shower should peak between 2 and 4 a.m.

As always, the best way to catch a glimpse of the show is to head away from urban areas where light pollution reduces visibility. Also, predictions have shown that these showers will be visible in both the Northern and Southern hemispheres. The 2016 Leonid showers showed activity between November 5 and 30, with the peak activity occurring between November 17 and 18.
