N. Taurid Meteor Shower

Next period of activity: October 20th, 2020 to December 10th, 2020

Peak: Nov 11-12, 2020 – the moon will be 21.3% illuminated.

This shower is much like the Southern Taurids, just active a bit later in the year. When the two showers are active simultaneously in late October and early November, there is sometimes an notable increase in the fireball activity. There seems to be a seven year periodicity with these fireballs. 2008 and 2015 both produced remarkable fireball activity.

Shower details – Radiant: 03:52 +22.7° – ZHR: 5 – Velocity: 18 miles/sec (medium – 30km/sec) – Parent Object: 2P/Encke
