ORIONID METEOR SHOWER: Earth is passing through a stream of debris from
Halley's Comet, source of the annual Orionid meteor shower. Forecasters
expect the shower to peak on Oct. 21st
with approximately 20 meteors per hour. Bright moonlight will reduce
visibility, however. The best time to look is during the hours before
local sunrise when the shower's radiant in the constellation Orion is
high in the sky.
