The annual Orionid Meteor Shower may already be underway. It is expected to peak during the night of 2021 OCT 20-21. Its radiant is in the constellation Orion. That is the direction toward which the meteor tails point, but the meteors are equally likely to appear anywhere in your sky. The Orionids are debris from the famous periodic comet 1P/Halley.

At the peak about 30 meteors per hour may be seen by some sharp-eyed folks, although this number can vary from year to year. The show begins after Orion rises in the late evening and intensifies until morning twilight. Since Orion lies on the celestial equator, the shower is easily observed from all geographic latitudes. The Full Moon near the shower peak will likely provide interference.

Descriptions of the shower or perhaps even lucky photos would be welcome additions to this thread. My calendar for the major meteor showers including Moon illumination data can be found at
