The show is happening in the northwestern skies since October 14th. Meteors habitually arrive in clusters and flow upon their radiant. When viewing the Orionids you can anticipate seeing about three meteors every ten minutes. So the question is, “where to look?” Look for the constellation Orion that rises in the sky after 10:30 PM whilst best viewing periods for the meteor shower are just before dawn as soon as the Earth is facing into the meteor stream. Orion is best recognized for the hero’s mighty belt, which is made up of three stars and a sword hanging from it. The blade is composed of a spectacular entity known as the Orion Nebula.
Even though the moon will be bright in the sky, you will still be able to see the larger brighter meteors. When viewing meteor showers there is no need for telescopes or binoculars, merely dress warmly and take a seat in a reclining chair and gaze at one of our Earth’s simple wonders.
