If you're looking to understand the reason behind the Leonid shower, it occurs when meteoroids fall towards the planet after breaking off from the Comet Tempel-Tuttle. The comet takes 33 years to complete one orbit of the sun.
About 20 meteors are expected to appear per hour.
The Leonid shower should be visible in some parts of the United Kingdom tonight. But Baker said the number of meteors we can see each year various depending on where the comet is and what material it's left.
At this time of year, the Leonids are visible in the eastern sky. Fireballs and "earthgrazer" meteors are also a hallmark of the Leonid shower. While the meteors radiate from the the constellation Leo, you don't need to look in its direction to see the meteors; simply look up!
Earth will pass through the thickest part of the Leonid swarm at 7 pm EST (2300 GMT) on November 17, however, Space reports the best time to look for the meteor shower will be during the after-midnight hours on Sunday morning. Fireballs are brighter and larger and can last longer than the average meteor, while earthgrazers appear close to the horizon with long, colorful tails.
One account from the 1966 Leonid storm described seeing "dozens of meteors every second. the effect was similar to watching snowflakes race at your windshield while driving in a snowstorm".
November can be pretty chilly, so bundle up if you're heading out to see the Leonids.
At peak time spectators can expect to see between 10 to 15 shooting stars go streaking across the sky every hour. In late autumn or early winter, that means viewing the spectacular light show with eyes pointed straight up in the night sky. If you want to photograph the Leonid meteor shower, NASA suggests using a camera with manual focus on a tripod with a shutter release cable or built-in timer, fitted with a wide-angle lens.
