Meteor shower from Halley’s Comet peaks on October 21, 2012

The Orionid meteor shower.

Every year in mid-to-late October, Earth passes through a stream of dusty debris from Comet Halley, and the pre-dawn sky lights up with a pretty display of shooting stars.

Forecasters expect 25 meteors per hour when the shower peaks on Oct.
21st. With no Moon to spoil the show, observing conditions should be
ideal.

Because these meteors streak out of the constellation Orion, astronomers call them “Orionids. The Orionid meteor shower isn’t the strongest, but it is one of the most beautiful showers of the year.

The shower is framed by some of the brightest stars and planets in
the heavens. Constellations such as Taurus, Gemini and Orion provide a
glittering backdrop for the display. But that’s not all. This year,
Venus and Jupiter have moved into position with Sirius, the Dog Star, to
form a bright triangle in the eastern pre-dawn sky. On the morning of
Oct 21st, blazing pieces of Halley’s Comet will cut straight through the heart of this celestial triad.



To see the show, we suggest going outside one to two hours before
sunrise when the sky is dark and the constellation Orion is high
overhead. Lie down on a blanket with a broad view of the heavens.
Although Orionids emerge from a small area near the shoulder of Orion,
they will spray across the entire sky.

“Be prepared for speed, Meteoroids from Halley’s Comet strike Earth’s
atmosphere traveling 148,000 mph. Only the November Leonids are
faster.

Occasionally, Orionid fireballs will leave incandescent streams of
debris in their wake that linger for minutes. Such filaments of meteor smoke twisted by upper atmospheric winds into convoluted shapes can be even prettier than the meteors themselves.
