Taurid Meteor Shower Should Be Visible To Some This Veteran’s Day

KEY POINTS

Get outside at dusk anytime this month and, if the skies are clear, you’ll see three bright points of light. You’ve probably already seen them and wondered what they are.

Are you seeing stars? No—they are all planets. 

Here’s a quick guide to what you’re seeing and where, but hurry. While these planets are currently dominating dusk, they are all now past their best and will, in the coming weeks, get dimmer as our planet moves away from them in its orbit of the Sun.
