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 nearly full 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.

 

Best viewing will be from a dark location after midnight.

 

Meteors will radiate from the constellation Orion, but can appear anywhere in the sky.

Mars is very easy to see with naked eyes, weather permitting.
