    anw, will there be anymore this year or i should say these days?

    There are similar celestial event throughout the entire year ranging from Quadrantids in January, Lyrids in April, Eta Aquarids in May, Perseids in August, Orionids in October, Leonids in November and Geminids in December.

    The maximum ZHR every year of any meteor showers is probably the Perseids (a ZHR of anywhere between 100 to 120) BUT every now and then the Leonids actually produces a METEOR STORM with a peak ZHR of anywhere between 500 to 1000 sometime in the middle of november. Go figure.

    You guys would be glad to know that it is a new moon phrase during the time when the ZHR from the Leonids meteor shower or meteor storm is suppose to peak.
