Taurid Meteor Shower

Much of the dust from this shower is caused by Periodic Comet Encke. Meteors from this shower may be visible from Oct. 20 through Nov. 30. The meteors will appear to originate from two points in the constellation of Taurus (RA 03 hrs 44 min, Dec +14° and RA 03 hrs 44 min, Dec +22°).
