Does anyone have more information on the expected peak? Experts predict the 2004 Leonids will feature two peaks on the night of November 18-19. The first comes when Earth will pass near the meteor stream of the year 1333 on 19 November at about 06:40 UT (18 November, 11:40 pm MST). This favors observers along the east coast of South America. Earth is predicted to pass through the stream of 1733 at about 21:50 UT (2:50 pm MST) on the 19th, a peak which would favor observers in Asia. For those of us located outside the favored regions for the above-mentioned events, the best time to go out and look for Leonid meteors will be during the historical peak just before sunrise on the morning of November 17.
