Here's The Info You Need About The Spectacular Orionid Meteor Shower Tonight!

Orionid meteor shower: You don't need a telescope to see this sky show in SC
Choosing an observation point that offers a panoramic view of the sky is a good idea. Are you ready for it? The next meteor shower visible from the United Kingdom will be the Leonids, reaching their peak across the evenings of November 17 and 18.
But this year, there's barely a sliver of moon in sight - the new moon was just on Thursday.
If you're in an area with more light pollution, a pair of binoculars will help.
The stream will start at 1am BST on Saturday (8pm EDT on Friday) and will include commentary and analysis from a number of experts. The Orionid meteor shower is peaking over the next couple of nights and viewing conditions couldn't be better.
One of the year's most anticipated celestial events will be visible around the world this weekend.
"Look near Orion's club in the hours before dawn and you may see up to 10 to 15 meteors per hour", said Jane Houston Jones, from Nasa's Jet Propulsion Laboratory.
These clumps of rock are actually bits left behind by the famous Halley's Comet, which is only visible from Earth about once every 75 years. Clear skies are in the forecast for the CSRA tonight and tomorrow night, so the view won't be blocked by clouds, plus it is a New Moon tonight, which means zero lunar light pollution. The key to viewing meteor showers is patience.
Look up at the night sky this weekend and you'll find a dazzling sight: The Orionid meteor shower, which will be at peak visibility over the next few days. Melissa Hulbert said, "This year it's predicted to be at the lower end of the scale, around 20-30 meteors per hour".
No. Viewing will be best with the naked eye. To find Orion, look for Sirius, the sky's brightest star. This is easy to locate in the sky: most people can pick out the line of three stars known as Orion's Belt.
Cloudy skies will be rolling across the U.S. this weekend.
