Time to take a shower again...

... a meteor shower, of course!

Yes! That's right. This Tuesday night is the annual Leonid Meteor Shower. Best viewing of this annual wonder will be late Monday night into early Tuesday morning when the peak period will offer an average of one every five minutes. Just look up into the Eastern sky at the constellation Leo, and catch a glimpse of a few "falling stars."

Those of you in or near cities might have a more difficult time due to the light pollution. The nearly full moon will also be bright, so it's best to look for those falling stars after midnight.

So, find a nice isolated area (with a clear sky, of course), be patient, and catch a few falling stars.

Go on... take a look!

Make a wish!

And say a prayer!

(just remember to dress warmly)
