The stars at night are big and bright… TONIGHT! (actually more like REALLY early tomorrow morning.) The Leonid meteor shower is scheduled to arrive at 4:30 tomorrow early morning. EL Trouvelot created this beautiful illustration of the meteor shower’s appearance on November 14, 1868. This print and many of Trouvelot’s other observations are available in NYPL Point: E.L. Trouvelot’s Astronomical Drawings. We strongly encourage you to see his amazing astronomical drawings and then witness the beauty of tomorrow’s display.
