METEOR SHOWER: Today, Earth is passing through a stream of debris from
Halley’s Comet, source of the annual Orionid meteor shower. Forecasters
expect ~25 meteors per hour when the shower peaks on Sunday, Oct. 21st.
No matter where you live, the best time to look is during the dark hours
before sunrise on Sunday morning. Observers in both hemispheres can see
this shower. Visit http://spaceweather.com for photos, more information, and live audio from a meteor radar.
Don’t just watch meteors, wear them. Authentic meteorite jewelry is available in the Space Weather Store: http://www.shopspaceweather.com
