Celestial News: Halloween Fireballs

Don’t be surprised if you see a blazing fireball or two streaking across the heavens while you are out trick-or-treating this weekend.  There’s no reason for alarm.  It’s just the annual Taurid meteor showers reaching their peak of activity. (more)...
The Taurid meteor shower, currently under way, will peak in Early November. Watch for slow, colorful fireballs that point backwards toward the Pleiades star cluster in Taurus, the Bull. The Pleiades are at top center in this image. Photo by Jimmy Westlake, 2008.
