- Halley’s Comet by W. Liller in Easter Island March 6, 1986
There is a meteor shower tonight and if clear skies are in the forecast for your area, then you will be able to see them.Â The annual Orionid meteor shower will appear tonight in the northeastern sky and will shoot in all directions. The meteor shower runs from October 17-25 and peak’s tonight when 30-200 shooting stars should be visible each hour.
The Orionid meteor showers move quickly and should pick up after midnight, and should be visible until dawn.Â And according to scientists, this yearâ€™s meteor shower should be more visual because of close to the earth comet dust.
The moonlight shouldn’t be bright this evening,Â but scientists have suggested keeping your eyes divered from the moonlight to watch the meteor showers.Â
