The Leonid meteor shower is usually active between about 6th to 30th November but the peak is predicted to be between the 16th and the 18th of November. About 10-15 meteors are estimated per hour but in the past there have been some spectacular showers, of which the most famous occurred in 1966 when 40 to 50 per second were noted in one short period.
Please use a star atlas or software, such as the freeware Stellarium, to determine the direction in the sky from which the meteors originate.
