Leonid Meteor Shower Peak 2012: Where to Watch

Look to the local skies for a great show, although, with a chance of rain, you might be better advised to watch online.

The Leonid meteor shower is anticipated to be at its best late Friday night and continue through the weekend, according to the Los Angeles Times.

Are you heading up to the open reserve near Mulholland and Hayvenhurst to watch? Or do you have another location in mind? Let us know by leaving a comment in the box below!

The National Weather Service is predicting a 30 percent chance of showers in the Encino and Tarzana area on Friday night, which might affect viewing.

The Times article states that "If you can find a clear, dark spot where the starry night sky is visible, you can expect to see as many as 15 to 20 shooting stars per hour."

However, if rain and clouds hamper the view, the Times also suggests watching online, courtesy of NASA. Click here to see NASA's view.
