Major Meteor Shower on Saturday

If you live on the East Coast, go outside and look up at the night sky on Saturday night, and you'll see an astounding event: the Leonid meteor shower.

Joe Rao writes in space.com that the Leonids are made up of the dusty debris from a comet that orbits the sun every 33 years. This dust produces spectacular meteor displays and "shooting stars." The expected time of peak activity is around midnight EST.
