The meteors appear to come from where Leo is, but as they then fly across the sky, you can see them anywhere in the sky. It is not necessary to know where Leo is in order to see the meteors. Just scan the sky continuously. During the course of the night Leo moves across the sky itself.

A meteor swarm is just a meteor shower with a higher frequency of visible meteors. More than four or five a minute would be a swarm.


The Leonid meteor shower. However it is not accurate to say it is on the 14th of November. Meteor showers last over the course of a number of days. They are not just on one single night. They can last weeks, except that at the start and end there are very few meteors, whereas around the peak, there are more to be seen. The peak of the Leonids is around the 18th of November, but you would see some on the 14th of November too and for some nights after the 18th of November.


A shooting star is properly known as a meteor. You can see a meteor on any night of the year, as long as you have clear skies. There is no month where you would not see any if you went out and looked for long enough. At certain times of the year it is possible to see more of them, during what are called meteor showers. In November each year there is the Leonid Meteor Shower, which peaks about the 17th and 18th of November. So any night around mid-November, not just those two nights, are good for looking for meteors. If you stay out long enough, scanning the skies, you have a good chance of seeing them. It is best to go somewhere dark, away from the lights of cities and towns, as they make it harder to see them.A shooting star is properly known as a meteor.

December 21, 2010 No this when a total lunar eclipse and meteor shower will happen on the same day and the next solar eclipse and meteor shower to happen on the same day will be on January 4th 2011 and this will be a partial eclipse not total A total eclipse and meteor shower only happen every 1000 years and that would be in December and it is a lunar not solar eclipse


Not really. The vast majority of meteors are the size of grains of sand. There are a few that would measure a couple inches across. the chances of a large rock being in the debris trail which causes the meteor shower are slim to none. A meteor shower is caused by bits of debris left behind by a comet. Comets are made of ice, not rock. Nothing dangerous there.



Well...the meteor show this evening I actually a meteor shower starting dec 22nd while the lunar eclipse started at 130am dec 21st. That's 2 entirely different days. I think it would be xtremely rare for these 2 events to happen on the exact same day


DO NOT, UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES try to watch the Perseid meteor shower while DRIVING a motor vehicle. Your eyes would be on the sky, and not on the other cars around you. VERY DANGEROUS. Aside from foolish stuff like this, no, it's not very dangerous at all. You will be outside at night. You might be eaten by a bear! Or bitten by a mosquito carrying Bird Flu. No; observing the meteor shower with these obvious precautions - not in the Everglades with the gators, and not in the middle of a road where the crazy driver might himself be looking up and not FORWARD; keep these obvious cautions in mind, and the chance of injury is remarkably low.


That depends largely on where you are. Please clarify whether you would like to know the next visible anywhere on Earth, or the next for a given location.


From the size of a grain of sand, to about the size of a grain of rice. A meteor the size of e kernel of corn would be rare. Bigger ones do come along, but things the size of a baseball probably only hit the Earth once a week or so.


Nothing particularly dangerous, there would be an impressive display or meteors.In fact the earth does pass through the remnants of comets regularly. The Perseid and Leonid meteor showers appear every year are just such events.


well the meteor would be sucked in by the earths gravitational pull


It depends on the size of the meteor but is would make a crater and most would vaporise.


Hi, It is because the meteor is going around the speed of light witch is to fast for your eye muscles to control so you just get a blur going past your eyes Another answer would be, Meteors are only traveling at a few tens of thousands of miles per hour, the main reason many people may not see them is due to daytime sunlight or cloud cover at night.


'In the shower' would be correct as the world 'shower' does not strictly define the shower head.


The lightning would travel through the meteor or through the plasma sheath around it. Some of the surface of the meteor may melt, though this will happen to a meteor anyway. Otherwise the meteor would be unaffected. The stress of atmospheric entry is much greater than any stress created by the lightning.


Yes, just like you would shower before seeing your doctor.


It wouldn't land. When a meteor lands it is now called a meteorite


The meteor would pass through the tornado, without being affected in the least.


Well at the moment, we don't know. But the reason we don't often see asteroids around earth, is because Jupiter is help us by sucking in most of the asteroids.


You can't stop meteor showers. They are naturally occuring events. As Earth goes through space, it encounters all sorts of dirt and debris which then enter our atmosphere and burn up in an instant. So it is impossible to stop them. It would be like trying to stop wind or rain or tides. Meteor showers are spectacular to watch, so nobody would want to stop them. There are very few meteors that pose any dangers to Earth.


Yes, "shooting star" is a colloquial term for what scientists would refer to as a meteor.


No. Meteorologists study weather. An astronomer would predict meteor showers.


Leonid Kantorovich was born on January 19, 1912 and died on April 7, 1986. Leonid Kantorovich would have been 74 years old at the time of death or 98 years old today.
