October 21, 22 :
Orionids Meteor Shower.

The Orionids is an average shower producing up to 20 meteors per hour at its peak.

It is produced by dust grains left behind by comet Halley, which has been known and observed since ancient times.

The shower runs annually from October 2 to November 7.

It peaks this year on the night of October 21 and the morning of October 22. The second quarter moon will block some of the fainter meteors this year, but the Orionids tend to be fairly bright so it could still be a good show.

The best viewing will be from a dark location. Meteors or Shooting Stars will radiate from the constellation Orion but can appear anywhere in the sky.
