Nov 3/4/5 Meteors

Meteor rates remain healthy. Over a quarter of all detected meteors are from the 2 Taurid showers. Though we are two weeks removed from the Orionid peak, a sprinkle of Orionids continue every night.

Lately, some of the nightly meteor posts have been posted a bit out of order. That’s what happens when you hit the “save” rather than the “publish” button. Oops.
