The Orionid Meteor Shower Peaks This Weekend
This weekend about 15-20 meteors per-hour will light up the night sky.
Fall is an active season for meteor showers. It's also the last few meteor showers you can view without freezing to the bone. Maine is a great place to see some of the best meteor showers of the year. It's not very hard to find dark areas away from light pollution to get a clear view of the night sky.
The tail of Halley's Comet produces a quality light show this weekend. The Orionid meteor shower are some of the fastest and brightest meteors you'll see. Space.com predicts the peak October 21-22. The best viewing will be at 2 a.m., when you can see about 15-20 meteors per-hour.
The next big meteor shower is coming up in November, the Leonid meteor shower.
