The best meteor shower of November will be in New Orleans tonight



NEW ORLEANS – The Leonid's meteor shower will peak on Saturday night and excellent conditions for observation are expected in the New Orleans area.

This meteor shower is known for its periodic storms that produce thousands of meteors per hour, though this year's meteor count is likely to be much lower.

Shortly after midnight Sunday until the early morning hours of November 18th, the Leonid Meteor Shower will reach its peak. Small stripes shoot over the sky as the Earth passes the Temple Tuttle comet's orbit.

This year's showers will produce 10 to 15 meteors per hour, and although it reaches its peak on early Monday, we will still see meteors from the Leonids by the end of the month.

These meteor showers only "storm" about every 30 years or so. The next time the Leonids produce one thousand or more meteors per hour, it will be around 2030.

According to AccuWeather, Southeast Louisiana has "good" viewing conditions, the highest rating for the observation of the storm.

The debris that causes these shooting stars are very different from what led to a fireball in St. Louis this week. Instead of being three feet tall, these meteors are about the size of a cheerios.

Since the metals are rich in iron and magnesium, the Leonids often leave pale green tails, according to Business Insider.
