Leonids 2023 – best way to watch
To enjoy this spectacle, it is worth choosing a place away from light sources and having binoculars or optical equipment with you to better see the “shooting stars”.
The radiant of the LEO meteor shower is located in the constellation Leo, so the best opportunity for observation will be the night of November 17-18, especially just before sunrise. Looking east, you can expect the greatest number of fireballs to streak across the sky.
