Yes, the "Orionids"... guess they're the residue from the tail of Halley's comet. Any of you 30 somethings remember when it came through? I was like 7, I think. Roughly another 50 years to go before the next sighting.
Sweet! I get to enjoy a meteor shower without the annoyance of mosquitoes. It was a big problem when I was watching the Perseid meteor shower last year (too cloudy this year). It looks like I'll get a few more opportunities to view this one before Oct. 27. Thanks for reminding me. Sadly, the 21st is the peak. My parents might think I'm crazy but... *bundles up in warm clothing and sneaks outdoors*
