October 22-23 - Orionids Meteor Shower
Created by dust grains left behind by comet Halley, the Orionids is an average shower producing up to 20 meteors per hour at its peak. The shower runs annually from October 2 to November 7 and peaks this year on the night of October 21 and the morning of October 22. It will be an excellent year for the Orionids because there will be no moon to interfere with the show. Best viewing will be from a dark location after midnight. Meteors will radiate from the constellation Orion, but can appear anywhere in the sky. Reference
