Oriniod meteor shower

Oriniod meteor shower

You may have spotted a meteor or two streaking across the sky this month, but the big show is coming this weekend.

The Orionids will peak on Sunday night and into early Monday morning, but stargazers should also be able to see some meteors on both Friday night and Saturday night leading up to the shower's peak, weather permitting.

One factor that will take away a view of some of the meteors is our bright moon.

After October 21, you still might see meteors until November 7.
