Northern Taurids Meteor Shower
October 20 - December 10
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.
Next period of activity: October 20th, 2019 to December 10th, 2019
Next Peak – The Northern Taurids will next peak on the Nov 11-12, 2019 night. On this night, the moon will be 100% full.
