Taurid meteor shower

2014 Nov 5

The Taurid meteor shower will reach its maximum rate of activity.

Some shooting stars will be visible each night from 20 Oct to 30 Nov, but the best show will be expected on or around 5 November 2014.

The maximum number of meteors expected to be visible from a dark location is around 10 per hour (ZHR). The Moon will be 13 days old at the time of peak activity, and being so close to Full Moon, will severely limit the observations that will be possible.

The radiant of the Taurid meteor shower is at around right ascension 02h56m35s , declination +14°00’00”.
