I thought the Taurids were done by Nov 18...

This doesn't look like the Leonid meteor I saw the night of Nov 16 either.

The one from the Space.com video link Nov 18 is not moving across the sky as fast as what I saw Nov 16. Although it sure looks a lot brighter and closer to the earth.



So you did see some of the Taurid meteor shower? Unfortunately I didn't have much of an opportunity to watch for them or the Leonid shower. When I saw the ISS, I was lucky that when I went out at 3am that it was readily visible.
That's where with the link I posted, wasn't sure but Taurids were also described as fireballs.

I've watch quite a few meteor showers over the years. Not each, and every one, is exactly the same as the last one. They don't all follow the same exact path. You look in the general direction, and hope for the best. Brightness and speed, are like a function of the size and composition of the space rock.

I use to be out walking my dog, early morning, before going to work. The local news usually has a story, about each shower, best times to view, and which direction to look.

I'm not sure if the meteor I saw ~ 9:50 p.m. PDT on Nov 16, looking up eastward, was part of Taurid or Leonid shower.

I wasn't planning to see it, just got lucky, at right time right place, with my head up.

Maybe you can take a picture?
