North Taurids meteor shower 11th Nov 2016
« on: October 16, 2016, 22:55:15 pm »
Late night November 11 until dawn November 12, 2016, the North Taurids
 Like the South Taurids, the North Taurids meteor shower is long-lasting (October 12 – December 2) but modest, and the peak number is forecast at about 7 meteors per hour. The North and South Taurids combine, however, to provide a nice sprinkling of meteors throughout October and November. Typically, you see the maximum numbers at around midnight, when Taurus the Bull is highest in the sky. Taurid meteors tend to be slow-moving, but sometimes very bright. In 2016, the waxing gibbous moon obtrudes on this year’s 2016 North Taurid shower.
