If for some reason, you missed the Orionids this morning, there is a good chance that the show will be good tomorrow AM.

THE ORIONID METEOR SHOWER–UPDATE: This weekend, Earth is crossing through a stream of dust from Halley’s Comet, source of the annual Orionid meteor shower.The shower is expected to peak on Sunday, Oct. 21st, with rates of ~20 meteors per hour. However, Halley’s debris stream is broad and the shower could spill into Monday, Oct. 22nd, as well. The best time to look is during the hours before local sunrise when Orion is high in the sky and the waxing-full Moon is hanging low in the west.
