Taurid meteor shower 2022: When, where & how to see it

The Taurid meteor shower is composed of two streams: The Southern Taurids which peak between Nov. 4 and Nov. 5; and the Northern Taurids which peak between Nov. 12 and Nov. 13. 

These showers produce infrequent, slow and long-lasting meteors associated with comet Encke, a small comet with a nucleus measuring approximately 2.98 miles (4.8 km) in diameter.
