1. EVENT: Leonid Meteor Shower
November 11 and 12, 2011
This shower is long-lasting (October 12 – December 2) but modest, and the peak number is forecast at about 7 meteors per hour. Typically, you see
the maximum numbers at around midnight to 1 a.m., when Taurus the Bull moves nearly overhead. This year, the bright waning gibbous moon shines right
in front of the constellation Taurus, making 2011 an unfavorable year for watching these rather slow-moving but sometimes bright North Taurid meteors.
The greatest numbers of North Taurid meteors come at late night and after midnight on the nights of November 11 and 12, but you might want to write
off this year’s North Taurids because of the strong moonlit glare.
