The Leonid meteors will be starting soon, although activity this year is not expected to be high. Maximum is expected on Nov 18 at 05h, but you could see the first members of the shower from about the 15th onwards. They appear to come from the 'Sickle' of Leo, not far from where brilliant Mars lies at present. They are very fast, and the brighter ones sometimes leave persistent 'trains'. Moonlight is not a problem this year.
