For those who will have clear skies on the 16th and 17th of November there should be a pretty good opportunity to catch a meteor light show of 10 to 20 meteorites an hour.. The following link is about the large fireball seen Wednesday night in Orange County. CCTV Video at link

“At first I thought it might be fireworks,” he said. “It was kind of greenish, and it was large. And then it broke apart.”

He added, “I’ve never seen anything like that before.”
Leonids 2013 — Leonids Meteor Shower Peaks November 16 2013

The Leonids meteor shower will be reaching its peak this year late night on November 16, 2013 (early morning November 17, 2013). The famous meteor shower, that appears to originate out of the constellation of Leo, is expected to reach a peak rate of around 10-20 meteors an hour this year — quite a bit down from the heights that the Leonids can hit, but should still make for a pretty good show.

While it is on the weekend, which is great, I can't find if it is going to be good viewing here in Michigan.
I would love to actually see this!

And shouldn't ISON start becoming visible about that time? I don't know what time though, or where, and am planning on watching ATS threads for that data. Ten to twenty meteorites an hour, nah, I'll pass on this one, but the one coming in May seems like it will be a step up from the normal light show.

yeah skywatching will be very interesting this year.

What was that thing about us passing throught the tail of ISON in January?

that outta make an interesting sky show...I mean, according to our experts all these annual meteor showers are a result of us passing throught the path of ancient, what will happen when we pass through the tail of a 'fresh' comet?

I wonder
