That's right folks the Orionois Meteor shower is begining again. This is not the brightest and best of the year but it is my favorite due to the constellation it originats from. It is ussually a good show. I urge all to get out and look upo while the weather is tolerable. Here is some info on the shower.

ORIONID METEOR SHOWER: Next weekend, Earth will pass through a stream of debris from Halley's Comet, source of the annual Orionid meteor shower. Forecasters expect ~25 meteors per hour when the shower peaks on Oct. 21st.

Oct. 12, 2012: Usually, waking up before sunrise is a good way to get a head start on the day. On Oct. 21st, waking up early could stop you in your tracks.

Blame Halley’s Comet. Every year in mid-to-late October, Earth passes through a stream of dusty debris from Comet Halley, and the pre-dawn sky lights up with a pretty display of shooting stars.

"We expect to see about 25 meteors per hour when the shower peaks on Sunday morning, Oct 21st," says Bill Cooke, the head of NASA's Meteoroid Environment Office. "With no Moon to spoil the show, observing conditions should be ideal."

Woohoo

Thanks for the heads up! I have always enjoyed meteor showers. The weather has been bad every single time - (the past 3 years): Hopefully this year will be a go with weather permitting!

Thank you for this announcement. There is sO much happening in this world - it is hard to keep up!
So MUCH appreciated! Just wish I had a nite IR cam to record the event but still it is fun seeing with the eyes!!!!

Thanks, Jimmy!
