Whop doesn’t like to sky-watch for falling stars?
If you’re into it, this weekend is going to bring one of the highlights of your year.
The Orionid meteor shower is set to peak tonight and Saturday night, with the best viewing times expected between midnight and right before sunrise.
According to Space.com , the meteors should be visible with the naked eye from anywhere on the planet save Antarctic (so unless you happen to be headed to the South Pole for the weekend, you should be good to go!).
Between midnight and dawn, you can expect to see 10 to 15 meteors per hour, or roughly one every four to six minutes. They will appear to be emanating from around the right shoulder of the constellation of Orion The Hunter (with the three-star belt).
Listen, I’m a space nerd, and correct me if I’m wrong, but doesn’t that seem about average for any given night?
