Major shower for this month is Leonids. Its nodal maximum occurs on 2022 November 17 but since last perihelion passage of parent Comet (55P/Tempel-Tuttle) was in 1998, only moderate activity can be expected from this maximum.

Additionally, there are some encounters with dust trails in the following days.
The most interesting seems the encounter with 1733 dust trail on November 19. M. Maslov predicts encounter at 06h UT, ZHR > 200 hr-1 with bright meteors. M.Sato predicts encounter at 06h20m-06h27m UT, ZHR > 50 hr-1. It has to be noted that activity level is uncertain since depends by the ejection velocities on this stream, that was scarcely observed in the past.

Weak rates are expected from the encounters with 1600 trail (November 18, 07h UT, prediction by J.Vaubaillon) and 1800 trail (November 21, 15h UT, prediction by M.Maslov).

For Radio Observers, the (Theoretical) UT peaks for upcoming showers in November 2022 are as follows:

Northern Taurids
Active: October 20 - December 10
Maximum: November 12 (λsol= 230 degs)
ZHR: Low (5hr--1)

Active: November 6 - November 30
Maximum: November 17, 23h UT (λsol= 235.27 degs)
ZHR: Medium (10 hr-1)

Active: November 15 - November 25
Maximum: November 21 (λsol= 239.32 degs)
ZHR: Variable, but generally low

November Orionids
Active: November 13 - December 06
Maximum: November 28 (λsol= 246 degs)
ZHR: Low
