Tonight and tomorrow will be the peak of the annual Bootid meteor shower. Due to the moon having already set this could be an ideal year for viewing the Bootids. The best viewing time is after local midnight and into the predawn. The Bootids are connected to the comet Pos-Winnecke, which circles the sun every 6.4 years.
