https://www.facebook.com/spaceweatherdotcomMETEORS FROM HALLEY’S COMET: Right now, specks of dust from Halley’s comet are disintegrating in Earth’s atmosphere, kicking off the annual Orionid meteor shower.

Forecasters expect the shower to peak this weekend with 20+ meteors per hour emerging from the constellation Orion. The nearly full Moon could reduce visibility, but it is possible to avoid the glare if you look at the right time.
