Leonid meteor shower: The meteor shower peak will come tonight (3 a.m. E.T. Saturday). The Leonid meteor shower is a product of the Earth passing through the tail of the Tempel-Tuttle comet.
Supermoon Saturday: It's also called the 'Flower Moon,' and 'Milk Moon.' The 'supermoon' will be only 221,802 miles from Earth, the closest to our planet this year.
Geminids: The meteors are — for those willing to brave the chill of a December night — a fine winter shower, and usually the most satisfying of all the annual showers.
