No telescopes or binoculars are required to view the meteor shower. All sky watchers need is a place away from the city lights. When the moon is in the waxing crescent phase, viewing the meteor shower is much easier. Meteors don’t have to compete with the bright light of a full moon.
Orionid meteors appear to radiate from the constellation Orion, but can be seen all over the sky. Those who miss the Orionid shower entirely have another chance to see some meteors light up in the night sky. The Leonids meteor shower begins in November and the Germinids in December.
While you still have the chance to watch the Orionids meteor shower, there are fewer meteors than at the peak. A meteor was expected every few minutes at the height of the shower. While a meteor is a lot every few minutes, the Orionids are considered to be a medium-strength shower that can occasionally deliver high-strength activity.
One of the most exciting things about the Orionids is that they are caused by debris left over from Halley’s comet. This is perhaps the most famous comet of all, which flies through our solar system every 75 years. The name Orionid comes from the fact that the meteors appear to be radiating from the constellation Orion. At the peak was the best view from the southwest and southern US. November 7th will be here before you know it, so anyone who wants to see the meteor shower should plan accordingly.
