Orionid Meteor Shower Live Webcast

Don't forget to look up tonight, it's the peak.

The Orionid meteor shower is an annual occurrence in mid autumn. The meteors are associated with Halley’s Comet and can put on quite a show, with as many as 50-70 sightings per hour. It will be located between the Orion and Gemini constellations. 

The full moon and city lights may wash out your ability to see many of the meteors at its peak, so if possible, try to find a dark, rural location from which to view the show!
