Goodness…Gracious…Great Balls Of Fire! Two Meteor Showers Light Up The Night Sky This Week!

What’s left that 2020 has yet to throw at us?

How about not one, but two meteor showers in the same week?

The Northern Taurid meteor shower, known for its large number of fireballs, will hit its peak tonight with larger meteors that explode in a flash of color and light.

The next week, on Nov. 17, the annual Leonid meteor shower reaches its peak – with as many as 10-20 visible meteors per hour! They are famous for their fireballs and Earthgrazer meteors. The last storm took place in 2002.

Experts say the best time to view both meteor showers is the hours after midnight and before dawn. Your feet should also be facing east as you lie flat on your back and look up.
