This is just a quick post to let you know if the skies are clear we are in for another celestial treat!
This is unlikely to be a very busy meteor shower but there is a possibility of seeing some rather spectacular fireballs, so even if you just catch one it’s sure to be memorable!
The South Taurid meteors can be seen around the 4th and 5th November while the North Taurid shower will be raining down the most meteors on the night of November 11-12.
The radiant point is Taurus although they can appear to come from any direction, as always, just look up!

Also keep an eye on the solar storms and Aurora predictions as it is possible we could be spoilt with another dazzling display.
Coronal hole faces Earth
Don’t think we really need to warn for this as most of you seem to be very enthusiastic about this but just a heads up for those who haven’t heard it:
A coronal hole solar wind stream is expected to arrive here on Earth in the next 12 to 36 hours. A moderate G2 geomagnetic storm is expected once the solar wind stream arrives, and the NOAA SWPC even has a warning in place for possible strong G3 geomagnetic storming conditions.
A minor disturbance in the solar wind was observed in the past few hours but we think this was caused by a solar sector boundary crossing (phi angle shifted) and this means the solar wind stream likely has yet to arrive.
