If you see a meteor in the nights around now, it may be a Taurid, or, less likely, a Delta Aurigid.
Don’t expect to see the spectacular abundance this picture may suggest.
The Taurids are a copious but diffuse stream, or family of streams. They are particles shed from Encke’s Comet: 2P Encke, which among comets is perhaps second in fame, and is first in shortness of period and history of known visits.
Comet Encke over three years of its 3.3-year orbit. Grid lines on the plane of the ecliptic are 1 astronomical unit (Sun-Earth distance) apart.
The meteors have spread into a sort of vast tube-like revolving cloud of which the comet’s orbit is merely the approximate center. Earth takes a month or more to travel through this cloud, and on any night from late September through October and even early December a few of the meteors may be seen. The peak, such as it is, may be about October 10, but it is far from being the sharp high peak of some of the other annual showers.
And during this span of time the radiant of the Taurids shifts steadily eastward, as happens in general with meteor streams because of the changing direction of Earth’s own travel; which is why the meteors’ trails around now may be traceable back to the region of Aries, later Taurus.
There is more detail about the Taurids, of course, in the “Meteors” section of Astronomical Calendar 2016.
