Meteor shower

If you trace the path that the meteors take, they seem to originate from a point in the constellation of Orion which gives the shower its name.

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.

At its peak, the shower usually produces between 10 and 20 meteors per hour.

The shower occurs every October when Earth passes through debris from Halley's Comet.

Binoculars and telescopes won't improve the view, because they are created to see more stationary objects in the sky.
