Taurid meteors

Taurid meteors are sometimes called “Halloween fireballs”. Fireballs are extremely bright meteors!

Taurid meteors will create one of this year’s longest meteor showers, with at least a couple of shooting stars per hour. Be on the look out from November 5th through November 12th when the Taurids are most active. These meteors are often yellowish-orange.

During peak times, about a dozen or so meteors may be seen per hour with clear, dark skies.
