According to in-the-sky.org, the Taurid meteor shower will reach its maximum rate of activity on 12 November 2016.

Some shooting stars associated with the shower are expected to be visible each night from 20th October to 30th November. The twin Taurids meteor showers — the South Taurids and the North Taurids will continue through December 2, 2016.

Similarly, on November 16, Leonid Meteor Shower, second meteor shower of the month could give observers a chance to see up to 15 shooting stars each hour.
