ABOUT THE ORIONIDS
The Orionid meteor shower is the second of two showers that occur each year as a result of Earth passing through dust released by Halley’s Comet, with the first being the Eta Aquarids. The point from where the Orionid meteors appear to radiate is located within the constellation Orion.
The Orionids generally begin on October 15 and end on October 29, with maximum generally occurring during the morning hours of October 20-22. The Orionids are barely detectable on the beginning and ending dates, but observers in the Northern Hemisphere will see around 20 meteors per hour at maximum. The maximum can last two or three nights, although there is evidence of some fluctuation from year to year.
