Spectacular fireballs will streak across the night sky as the Taurid meteor shower hits its peak this week.
The shooting star display is the combination of two meteor showers: the Northern Taurids and the Southern Taurids.
It is active between October and November, with the brightest display expected between November 11 and November 12.
While they will be jaw-dropping, the Taurids are few and far between.
“The Taurids are rich in fireballs, so if you see a Taurid it can be very brilliant and it’ll knock your eyes out, but their rates absolutely suck,” NASA meteor expert Bill Cooketold Space.com.
“It’s simply the fact that when a Taurid appears it’s usually big and bright.”
