The Taurid Meteor Shower This Weekend

The Taurid meteor shower will be highly visible this weekend as we are still in the tail of Comet Encke. The best time to view these meteors will be between the hours of around 1-2am Friday, Saturday, and Sunday night. The reason for such good viewing this weekend is a combination of clear skies (especially Friday and Saturday night) and the fact that the Moon doesn't rise until 2:15 Saturday morning and 3:19 Sunday morning. The best place to look is to the East in the early part of the night towards the constellation Taurus, then as we get closer towards midnight look straight up.

If you happen to get a pic of one, make sure you send it to photos@11alive.com!
