If you didn't get to watch for meteors this morning, Nov 17th, you still have another chance. Tomorrow morning, between midnight and dawn, the Leonid meteor shower will still be in it's peak. You don't have to look in any particular direction of the sky, just look up. If you are watching with a friend, watch opposite sides of the sky. Be sure to call "meteor" when you see one so the other can turn to catch a glimpse.
