Time and intensity predictions for Leonid meteor shower in both Europe and North America here [comets.amsmeteors.org]. Search Google for Australia.

...this will be the last chance for storm-level displays from the Leonids for nearly 100 years

Gonna sleep under the stars of the Sinai desert tonight. Hopefully we can wake up early (4am) for the Leonid shower. Unfortunately the moon here is almost full so the sky won't be very dark.
