The Milky Way is reflected in an Alpine Lake as three Leonid meteors streak overhead.

Leonid meteor shower 2022: here’s what to expect

This week brings us the return of the famous Leonid meteor shower, a meteor shower that two decades ago generated much anticipation and excitement among skywatchers around the world.

Solely from the point of view of the observing circumstances, this will be a favorable year to look for these meteors, because the moon will be a waning crescent phase and should not interfere too much with meteor watchers who will be looking for these superfast, soaring meteors of the Sickle of the Lion (from which the meteors take their name).
