Default How to find out the real download URL on download sites that use redirects

Let's say I want to download something with wget but the website that has the files I need redirects to a site which automatically chooses a mirror for me (and there's no static file URL provided).

Downloading from such sites works with Firefox, but how do I get real url (not only the link to the redirect page) so I could download these files with wget?

You can use the developer tools of your browser to check the real url of download
or install browser extension that monitors all requests and shows their details.
