After days of clouds and rain, we are expecting skies to clear tonight and through the weekend. That will make viewing of the annual Orionid Meteor Showers visible to those willing to brave the cool temperatures. This particular meteor shower isn’t quite as spectacular as the Perseid meteor shower in August, but you can expect to see 15-20 meteors or “shooting stars” per hour.
According to Richard Walker, Longway Planetarium Astronomer, the best times for viewing should be from midnight tonight until just before dawn tomorrow (Saturday). The meteors can appear in all parts of the sky, but if you trace them backwards they will appear towards the constellation Orion. Orion will move from the southeast to the south as the evening wears on. With the skies clearing, the temperatures are expected to fall into the 30′s overnight, so dress warmly!
