Orionid meteor shower to peak October 20th

By  | 

The Orionid meteor shower will peak Friday night and early Saturday morning, according to SkyEarth.

You might see approximately 10 to 15 meteors per hour.

There will not be much moonlight Friday night, so this year's Orionid meteor shower will be a lot easier to spot.

The best time to watch is between midnight and dawn.

The Orionids are a result of Halley's Comet. The comet last visited Earth in 1986 and will make its next appearance in 2061.
