Land will cover the Leonid meteor

In the night from Thursday to Friday Ufa residents will see a rare celestial phenomenon — the so-called Leonids. On that night, an hour will fall about a hundred meteorites.

— To see them any special optical devices do not need enough to go after four in the morning and look at the east side of the sky, — told the "KP" in Ufa planetarium. Leonids will be visible until Wednesday, November 23.

The last time the Leonids were out back in 1999, then the flow totaled about 5,000 meteorites per hour, and the next visit is expected only in 2032.
