Leonids Peaking RIGHT NOW

The Leonid meteor showers, spectacular these last few years, are peaking today, at about 1:40 AM EST in North America. This may be the last time the Leonids are visible this century. While less intense than the Leonids of 1999-2002, you could see 15 meteors an hour. Leonids are particularly bright, so if you get to a dark area, you should see a good show.
It's cloudy where I am, but I'm going to take a drive out to somewhere dark and remote to see if I can find some falling stars.
