The Leonid Meteor Shower will hit its peak early in the morning Tuesday, Nov. 17.

For those far enough from city lights and fortunate enough to have clear skies, it will be quite a sight and here's some tips on where and how to see it.

Of course not all will be so lucky. Meteorologists in the Grand Rapids area in Michigan have already said it may be difficult to see due to clouds in the region, and the same will hold true for others.

Scientists have also said the show is likely to be less spectacular in North America. The best viewing spot on the planet for the Leonid Meteor Shower is predicted to be Asia.

But for those who don't see it in person, here's a glimpse at what the shower might look like, with up to 30 to 300 shooting stars per hour.
