Keep an eye towards Taurus this weekend and you might just see a few spectacular meteors. The Taurid meteor shower is taken place rightÂ now and will continue through the weekend, with the peak expected to be after midnight on the 11th and 12th. However forecasts for this evening in the North West of Ireland is calling for relatively clear skies compared to tomorrow and Monday so it might be best to go looking tonight after midnight.
Tonight was the first night in a while that I have had the opportunity to go and have a good look at the night sky.
Although I am still without a telescope I decided to do what other astronomy website’s recommend and get to know the sky just using a pair of binoculars.
