Love the night sky? You’re in luck! Orionid meteor showers will peak tomorrow (20th October) night! You could see up to 20 shooting stars an hour and the UK is looking set to have some clear skies for the occasion. The Orionids are remnants of Hallys Comet and the meteorites will be travelling at around 41 miles per second! However, with the dark, clear skies, and the meteorites’ long-lasting trail, it’s going to be impossible to NOT see them!
The famous Hallys comet only comes by Earth once every 75 years, so this will most likely be your only chance to see it! They can be seen anywhere from Earth, but you’re best to head somewhere a little more isolated than major cities; all that damn light pollution will ruin it!
