(Newser) – The Leonid meteor shower is making its annual November visit, and it peaks overnight tonight, reports ABC News. The Leonids generally aren't the most spectacular of shows, but patient sky-watchers will likely be rewarded given the young moon. If you can't get outside, NASA plans a live feed of the night sky over Huntsville, Alabama. The bigger Geminids shower is due to peak Dec. 13.
