Orionid meteor shower to peak soon, best times to see it

Posted by in category: space

This fall sky show has some really bright meteors this year.

Two full moons with a meteor shower sandwiched in between? October has been a fun month for sky watchers.

The annual Orionid meteor shower is already heating up. It generally lasts from early October through about Nov. 7. This year, it’s expected to reach its peak before dawn on Oct. 21.

But don’t wait until then to start watching for meteors streaking across the sky.
