All meteor showers are named for the constellation that they appear to radiate outward from. The common point within the constellation where the meteors radiate outward from is called the radiant. The Northern Taurids radiant is very close to the open star cluster the Pleiades in Taurus the Bull as the animated graphic above shows. This part of the sky rises during mid-evening local time however the waxing gibbous Moon is over the southern horizon and brightening the sky. The best viewing time will be at or after moonset which is around 2 am local time. This graphic is set for 5 am CST, well after moonset.
