Taurid meteor show

Coronavirus reopening

The Taurid meteor shower is underway, and will last the next few days (until the 12th of November). The shower is caused by the Earth ploughing through debris left behind by Comet Encke.

This year may be a swarm year, but there is only one way to find out for sure... and that is to go outside and look! Since the meteors could appear anywhere in the sky, all you need to do is to look up with your own eyes.
