Two Meteor Showers Will Light Up The Night Sky This Week


Get ready for two meteor showers this week and next week!

The Northern Taurid meteor shower will peak on Wednesday, Nov. 11th— known for its large number of fireballs—bigger meteors that explode in a flash of color and light.

On Nov. 17th, the annual Leonid meteor shower reaches its peak - with as many as 10-20 visible meteors per hour.

The best time to view both meteor showers is the hours after midnight and before dawn.
