Leonid Meteor Shower Tonight November 16, 2012

Feel like a shower...meteor shower that is?  Tonight is the night.  If you go out between midnight and dawn in a wide open area that provides a clear view of the dark sky, find the eastern horizon.  Then look up to find a hook-shaped pattern of stars which is the Sickle of Leo, the Lion (the curve is the lion's head).  While the meteors can be spotted practically anywhere in the sky, if you trace the flight line backward across the sky, the line will cross the Sickle.
