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 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. Ever stay up late to watch a meteor shower?
