Graphic from Sky Safari showing Orionid meteror shower in the eastern skyThe Orionid meteor shower peaks after midnight between 2-6 a.m. (technically 10/22).

As the Earth passes through a stream of icy, dusty debris that Halley’s comet left in our orbital path, 15-20 meteors/hour will be visible from a dark sky site without a lot of light pollution. Enjoy these sparkly, seasonal treats!
