  I realize that the Leonid shower is a regular event, but generally,
  are meteors something that can be predicted? I ask this question
  as an absolute novice. Is there some way to say that, if you look
  to the Northwest around 8 on December something or other, the chances
  of seeing a meteor are raised? And what do you watch them with, since,
  so far as I know (obviously very little) they only last a moment or
  two. 
  Thanks for any information.
