Panama City, FL- Grab that seat, put on a jacket, and head outside to watch the celestial show!

The only viewing issue tonight will be the bright 1st quarter moon taking up most of the eastern sky until midnight. So, if you have a chance very early tomorrow morning, stroll outside and take a gander. Should be a good showing.

*The Leonids Meteor Shower gets it's name because the meteors appear to originate from the constellation Leo. In the case of the Leonids, the Earth is passing through comet debris left over from the comet Tempel-Tuttle.

*The next meteor shower will be on December 13th..the Geminids
