Orionid Meteor Shower

Hey everybody! Take a look outside your window between the pre-dawn hours of Wednesday. The annual “Orionid Meteor Shower” is coming to Earth to destroy us all!

Just kidding!

This meteor shower is going to be really cool to watch, and according to NASA’s , Bill Cooke we will be seeing, “Flakes of comet dust hitting the atmosphere that should give us dozens of meteors per hour.”

This Orionid Meteor Shower is created when Earth passes through trails of comet debris that were left in space long ago by Halley’s Comet.

If you live in a more rural area you should be able to see the showers, but suburbs and people near the citites will be too blinded by the light pollution to see anything cool.

Ya for pollution!
