Earth is passing through a stream of gravelly debris from Comet Encke, source of the annual Taurid meteor shower. Because the debris stream is not very congested, Taurid meteor rates are low, no more than 5 per hour. The special thing about Taurids is that they tend to be fireballs. Check for the latest videos and images of the display, which is expected to peak around Nov. 12th.

Don’t just watch meteors, wear them:  Authentic meteorite jewelry is available in theSpace Weather Store:
