One of the year's five best annual showers, the Orionid Meteor Shower, peaks on the morning of Thursday, October 21. Unfortunately, the nearly full moon's glare will hamper observations of the meteors all night long. Despite the moon glare, and even bright city lights, you might spot five or ten meteors per hour during the most favorable hours of 4am to 6am. The Orionids seem to radiate from the constellation of Orion, hence their name.
