This isn’t a video of the Leonids (it’s a video of the Perseids a few months ago in Joshua Tree National Park), but it’s phenomenal regardless.

I highly recommend putting it in HD and on full-screen.

Step 1: Go outside.
Step 2: Find a dark (safe) place.
Step 3: Look up! The Leonids are peaking tonight!! (http://bit.ly/9bYnFm)
