Orionids Oct 21-22, 2012

Don't forget that the Orionids peak on October 22. The best viewing time is 3-5 am on the morning of the 22nd, but people looking on the morning of Sunday Oct 21 should also see some decent meteors.

People loooking north-east should see roughly a meteor every 5 minutes (althought there will be longish stretches with no meteors, be patient).

When going out, do let a at least 5 minutes pass for your eyes to become dark adapted.
