Orionid Meteor Shower:
This year should be great for the Orionid meteor shower!
Earth is about to pass through a stream of debris from Halley’s comet, source of the annual Orionid meteor shower. Forecasters expect the shower to peak on Saturday morning, Oct. 22nd, with more than 15 meteors per hour. Earth isn’t the only world in the debris stream; NASA researchers will also be watching for meteoroid strikes on the Moon.
