Must-see photos: Leonid meteor shower




The annual Leonid meteor shower is promising to put on a dazzling sky show. St. Petersburg Times photographer Maurice Rivenbark shot this photo about 4 a.m. Tuesday as the  meteor shower neared its peak over the Eastern sky near Floral City.

We've collected some spectacular photos of the Leonid meteor shower -- named for the constellation Leo -- taken over the last several years by Times and Associated Press photographers.
