Leonid meteor shower best seen this weekend

Lead in text: 
EarthSky Magazine says it will be most visible on Saturday night because Sundays full moon will wash out light from the meteors.
Skywatchers, rejoice! The Leonid meteor shower, an annual mid-November treat, will be coming to a sky near you this weekend. The peak of the shower will be visible both Saturday and Sunday nights, according to EarthSky magazine. Unfortunately, the full moon comes Sunday, which will wash out all but the very brightest meteors from view.
