A Leonid meteor shower will be visible in a clear night sky over all Thailand on Friday, November 17.
Another meteor shower, the Taurid meteor, was also visible on the 10 and 11 of this month. The Leonid meteor shower is considered the brightest as the objects move through the earth's atmosphere at the rate of 71 kilometers per second.
The annual Leonid meteor shower is a phenomenon that is believed to originate from the Leo constellation.
As of Tuesday morning, the National Weather Service in Wilmington, N.C. expects clear skies during Thursday night and partly cloudy skies Friday night in Myrtle Beach.
Nasa has described the Leonids as "some of the fastest meteors out there", so stargazers will have to keep their eyes peeled if they are to stand a chance of catching a glimpse.
"This year, however, visibility will be excellent because the new moon will take place on November 18, providing a ideal view of the meteors, which will not be washed out by any lunar light", the space website wrote.
Where is the best place to view them?
But don't be put off, people in Northern America, Europe and some of Asia will also be able to see this spectacular space event.
The Leonids are best viewed when is the sky is darkest between midnight and the very beginning of sunrise.
Will you need a telescope?
"In less than 30 minutes in the dark, your eyes will adapt and you will begin to see meteors".
Although this is a relatively few compared to other showers, the Leonids tend to burn brightly.
"If you do look directly at the radiant, you will find that the meteors will be short - this is an effect of perspective called foreshortening".
