Halloween Fireballs

Source - Space Weather News for Oct. 29, 2015:

HALLOWEEN FIREBALLS:  This weekend, Earth could run into a stream of gravelly debris from Comet Encke, source of the annual Taurid meteor shower.  The last time this happened, ten years ago in Oct. 2005, the encounter sparked a two-week display of bright meteors called the "Halloween fireballs."  Will it happen again in 2015? Visit for more information and observing tips.
