Well, in addition to the obvious mistake about moonlight aiding the visibility of meteors, the author of the article also got the dates of the peaks of the Southern and Northern Taurids (November 5th and 12th) wrong, as well as the ZHRs (5 to 10 per hour), not to mention the fact that nobody is going to be seeing 10 to 20 FIREBALLS per hour.
The Leonids (15 to 20 per hour) peak on November 17th.
Sic itur ad astra!
Chance favors the prepared mind.
A man is a small thing, and the night is very large and full of wonders.
