The peak will be the night of November 16, with about 15 meteors per hour.
The best time to see the meteors is between midnight and dawn.

Shooting stars travel at about 45 miles per second (at2 km / s) and about half of them leave visible trains that sometimes last for seconds.
Bill Cooke of NASA said in a guide to watching the Leonids, 'Go outside, find a dark sky, lie flat on your back and look straight up, and be prepared to spend a couple of hours outside'.
For the uninformed, the Leonids emerge from the comet Tempel-Tuttle, which requires 33 years to revolve once around the Sun.
The origin of the shower, called the "radiant", is in the constellation Leo the Lion.
Every 33 years, the Leonid meteor shower arrives as a storm of meteors, with more than 1,000 shooting stars an hour. The last Leonid meteor storm took place in 2002. For this reason, they can never successfully pass through the atmosphere and reach the earth's surface.
The next big meteor shower in the sky will be Geminids in mid-December.
It's not necessary to focus on a particular area of the sky, but if you can spot the constellation Leo, the Leonids will appear to originate from that part of the sky and streak outward like spokes on a wheel.
The American Meteor Society says it's unlikely we'll see such a storm in our lifetimes (the most recent was in 2001), although 2030 might see a minor storm. But you do not need to look in the direction of the galaxy because the meteor will appear across the sky.
A Meteor What astronomers said was a flash of light in the atmosphere when debris ignited.
Meteor showers are nothing but cosmic debris left behind a comet.
The Earth passes through the debris fields every year and the collision of the particles with our atmosphere creates the fiery and colorful displays.
