Taurid meteor shower

Wednesday 12th Nov 2014

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 12 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 20 days old at the time of peak activity, and so will present significant interference in the pre-dawn sky.

The radiant of the Taurid meteor shower is at around right ascension 03h24m11s , declination +22°00’00”.
