The crew of ISS will get a great view of the upcoming Leonids meteor
shower in November 
 
http://SkyandTelescope.com/observing/objects/meteors/article_719_1.asp

ISS crew 5, was planing on coming home before the shower, however due to
schedule changes, Valery and crew and possibly the shuttle STS-113 will
all be flying around in space during the next big Meteor Shower.  I hope
the can see, but not HEAR the meteor shower.  

Current Expedition Five Crew
Cosmonaut Valery Korzun (Col., Russian Air Force) Expedition commander
Astronaut Peggy Whitson; flight engineer
Cosmonaut Sergei Treschev (RSC ENERGIA); flight engineer

Next crew to arrive late November
Expedition Six Crew 
Flight 11A - STS-113 / Return Flight ULF-1 - STS-114
Astronaut Kenneth Bowersox (Capt., U.S Navy); Expedition commander

Email from ISS:
I sent Valery an update on the current meteor shower status, including
dates time, etc.  Since Valery will be in flight during the Leoinds
meteor shower, he is planning on doing some observing.  Below is a copy
of the message he sent back to Miles.

Subject: THANKS!

MILES, 
THANKS FOR INFORMATION.
WE REALLY LIKE TO OBSERVE THE UNIVERSE. HI.HI.

[the hi hi, is ham jargon for laughing, I assume he
is referring to seeing the meteors, rather getting hit by them.
The Mir station did get a few holes in the solar panels the
size of a quarter after a meteor shower]

WILL TRY TO LOOK AT IT [Leonids Meteor Shower November 18-19]. 
I SAW [the Leonids] METEOR SHOWER ON MIR.
IT WAS BEATIFUL VIEW!.73.

VALERY
