Leonid Meteor Shower to Light Up Ithaca Sky
Meteors wills streak across the night sky early Tuesday morning in the annual Leonid meteor shower. Experts estimate that several hundred meteors per hour will be visible, one of the larger displays in recent memory.
The most intense part of the meteor shower visible here in eastern North America will be between 3:30 A.M. and 5:30 A.M. Tuesday morning.
To best see the display, Ithaca residents should head into outlying areas, away from local light pollution. The same goes for the Cornell campus, an area especially illuminated at night.
