Orionid meteor shower
October 22-23 2022
One of the most reliable of the major annual showers presently observable reaches its broad maximum on October 23rd early morning hours making the October 22nd evening a better time to enjoy up to 40 meteors per hour. Rising just after 10:00 PM, the radiant will be above the sky for whole night making it easier to spot hundreds of meteors in the night.
Orionids are very promising meteor showers of the year and in last decade, they have rarely disappointed the observer around the globe. This year the moon will be rising late in the night making more meteors to be spotted easily..
Orionid shower are caused due to the debris left behind by the most famous Halley’s Comet during its regular visit to the inner solar system. The comet has an orbital period of 76 years and is expected to revisit the inner solar system by the year 2062.
