    A meteor shower peaking this week could bring a great cosmic show to people in places dark enough to see it.

    The Leonid meteor shower should be at its peak Tuesday night into Wednesday morning, before dawn local time, for observers with clear skies and low light pollution in the United States.

    "A waxing-crescent moon will set before midnight, leaving dark skies to view these bright and colorful meteors," NASA said in a statement. "Dedicated observers with a telescope may wish to watch the Moon's earthlit night side for flashes due to Leonid meteoroid impacts on its night-side hemisphere."
