The first thing you want to do after sunset on November 4, 2013, is to catch the waxing crescent moon and the planet Venus low in the west-southwest sky. The moon sets first and Venus sets next, but both are long gone by the time that Taurus fully climbs over the eastern horizon at mid-evening.
The South Taurid meteor shower is expected to be at its best from late evening on Monday, November 4, till dawn on Tuesday, November 5. This shower greatly favors the Northern Hemisphere, but the best viewing from anywhere worldwide is usually during the wee hours just after midnight. Best yet, there will be no moonlight to ruin the South Taurid display in early November 2013.The only problem is that we are expecting a mostly cloudy evening so we would be lucky to catch a glimpse of a meteor.
