Look to the Skies
In terms of celestial fireworks, this weekend should be a doozy.
Starting at 11 p.m. Eastern time tonight, the Orionid meteor shower will be visible in the night sky. Experts predict a rate of 25 meteors per hour with the entire show running through early Sunday morning.
Since the moon won’t be shining as much, the meteors should be much easier to spot. A telescope is not required, so I highly suggest you take a look.
You certainly can’t beat the free entertainment!
