After three typhoons and a 6.5-magnitude earthquake, Filipinos will have a momentary reprieve from the natural disasters hitting the country. Tomorrow night, the Leonids meteor shower will illuminate the Earth's night sky, visible to stargazers in the Philippines from Tuesday night to dawn on Wednesday morning. 

The Leonids meteor show, also known as the Leonids, is always a sight to behold. The best time to watch the "shooting stars" will be at 2 a.m. on Wednesday night. 

Below is a diagram by PAGASA on how the meteors will travel. Look east, advises PAGASA, as this will give you the best view.

While it feels like the world is burning, it is important to find moments of joy and hope. So when the earth feels too dark and tragic, look up and bask in the light show of the cosmos.

And remember that better days are ahead.
