Around now, watch for Taurid fireballs 

EarthSky  reports

We haven’t heard from many people who’ve seen fireballs in either of the long-lasting South or North Taurid meteor showers this year. Still, it’s always worth keeping an eye out. Various sources give wildly different dates for the peak date of South Taurids (active from late September to late November). November 6, 2019, is one of those predicted dates. November 4 and 5, 2019, might be good nights to watch for meteors, too, possibly featuring a higher-than-average rate of South Taurid meteors. There is less moonlight tonight and tomorrow night – November 2 and 3, 2019 – so don’t discount these nights, either.
