Orionid meteor shower peaks for viewing this weekend in central Indiana

This October's Orionid meteor shower will peak in the predawn hours of Saturday, Oct. 21.

At the same time, the Orionid meteor shower, which appears to originate in the constellation Orion, could produce up to 50 shooting stars per hour tomorrow, with the peak period expected from 10pm to early Sunday morning. It produces some of the brightest meteors all year.

As the comet moves through space, it leaves debris in its wake that strikes Earth's atmosphere most fully around October 20-22, each year. Experts say you can also watch the shower on October 21 and October 22.

By this time, the Moon will have set.

This is the most famous comet on the astronomical calendar because it's visible to the naked eye and also because it can be seen twice in a human lifetime thanks to its appearance in our skies every 74 to 79 years.

The Orionid meteor shower happens annually when the Earth plows through dusty debris from Halley's Comet, named after astronomer Edmond Halley, who determined the comet's periodicity and contributed to further knowledge about the solar system.

The offspring of Comet Halley will grace the early morning hours as they return once again as the Orionids.

However, weather conditions in the greater Taipei area are forecast to be less stable tomorrow night, and there could be clear skies, clouds or showers, according to the Central Weather Bureau.

The eastern US will have the best weather on Friday night for viewing the shower with a large dome of high pressure promoting clear skies across the region, AccuWeather reports.

"Meteors can appear anywhere in the sky, though if you have to pick a direction, you might fare slightly better looking east".

For the best show, find a safe, dark place away from city lights.

You can make your meteor watching experience much more comfortable if you take along a lawn chair, a blanket and a thermos of your favorite hot beverage.
