4 during the first quarter moon, so stargazers can expect darker skies that are conducive for viewing meteor showers. Meanwhile on Nov. 16 to Nov. 17, Leonids Meteor shower will occur.
If you didn't get to see the meteors showering the sky this past week, don't despair. There are more coming. November shows include the South and North Taurids, Nov. 4-5 and 11-12, and the Leonids, Nov. 16-17.

Reports point to a robot village, manmade meteor showers and 5G wireless networks, to name a few. But don't get your hopes up for a Jetsons-themed Opening Ceremony just yet.
The least populous prefecture in Japan, Tottori enjoys clear night skies and frequent displays of shooting stars, most notably the spectacular annual Leonid meteor shower.
"If some major astronomical event like meteor showers or lunar eclipses occur, we try to do special open house for those events," Bomze said.

It should also be noted the there was significant cloud coverage the night the Charlotte video was filmed, and the date of the video fell between the peaks of two prominent meteor showers. As Earth Sky reports, the Draconids meteor shower peaked on ...
(WBAY) - Stargazers should be able to view the Orionid meteor showers during the peak activity Friday night into Saturday. NASA says the showers could produce up to 20 meteors per hour during peak activity.
At its peak, those looking to the skies have been able to see up to 20 shooting stars per hour and unlike most meteor showers it has been visible in both the Northern and Southern hemispheres. Previous showers have seen between 50 to 70 meteors per ...
You can use your astronomy app to zoom in and see the current arrangement. Likewise, Saturn should appear slightly oblong due to its rings.
The best time to see the Orionids is before dawn Saturday morning, so this is another one of those meteor showers that favors early-risers.
They're one of a few major, yearly meteor showers. The Orionids -- so named because the meteors appear to radiate out from near the Orion constellation -- happen from October to November.
Late fall and early winter nights will provide views of a number of meteor showers that can be seen with the naked eye. "Meteors, commonly called shooting stars, are actually debris thrown off by comets as they orbit the sun," said Rebecca Johnson, UT ...
The famous Orionid meteor shower reaches its peak tonight (Thursday, October 20) and if you're lucky you'll be able to watch it in all its glory.

As the moon rises in the east on this evening, it is within the constellation Taurus, where two November meteor showers emanate from.

This is one of the best meteor showers of the year and is caused by debris left behind by Halley's Comet. We are also approaching the drawn out Taurids, a meteor shower known for producing bright fireballs.
It also so happens that the night skies have a packed schedule this fall with a number of notable meteor showers to enjoy. On Oct. 21, immediately before the dawn, the Orionid meteor shower.
Because Orion's famous three-star belt straddles the celestial equator, the Orionid meteor shower is one of just a handful of known meteor showers that can be observed equally well from the Northern and Southern hemispheres. Usually, Orionid meteors ...
Orionid meteors will streak across the night sky as the shower is set to peak late this week. The Orionid meteor shower is a moderate shower that produces about 25 meteors per hour on the peak night.
As always, meteor showers are hard to predict, but if the weather is good, you may be able to see 10 to 20 meteors per hour under very dark skies.
Shooting stars will light up the skies this month as the Earth moves through the trail of Halley's comet. The Orionid is one of two meteor showers created by the debris left by Comet Halley. The Eta Aquarids in May this year was the first meteor shower ...
But every year, pieces of Halley's Comet come close enough to see every May and October in the Eta Aquarids and Orionid meteor showers, respectively. NASA meteor expert Bill Cooke told space.com the Orionid meteor shower's intensity varies from year to ...
scientists counted 222 new meteor impacts in seven years. the moon's surface is changing considerably faster than previously thought, says a new study.
If the Orionids don't work out, you still have several meteor showers through the end of the year. The Taurids and Leonids are in November.
Some of the brightest and swiftest shooting stars will bedazzle the night sky this month during the Orionid meteor shower, which will peak next Thursday and Friday (Oct. 20-21) and continue through early November.
Over the next six weeks, those watching the night skies are in for a wonderful treat. During that time, stargazers will be able to see several meteor showers from midnight to dawn in the Northern Hemisphere. The first set of showers are the Orionids ...
Dust from Halley's Comet will produce an amazing meteor shower this weekend that should be visible in the north west of Scotland.

There are meteor showers occurring each month until the year's end. A good one to be aware of this month is the Taurid meteor shower, which may well produce a swarm of fireballs or exceptionally bright meteors in late October and early November.

It is now also possible to have multiple bases, or at least multiple air-locks, which is great because digging yourself deeper and deeper into a cliff-side with only one exit on a planet with active seismic events and meteor showers is kind of a recipe ...
