The Orionid meteor shower is an annual occurrence in mid autumn. The meteors are associated with Halley’s Comet and can put on quite a show, with as many as 50-70 sightings per hour. They will be located between the Orion and Gemini constellations. 

The full moon may wash out your ability to see many of the meteors at its peak, so be sure to keep looking up throughout the month so you don’t miss out!
