Clear skies for meteor shower this weekend

Published: Wednesday, October 18, 2017 @ 5:53 AM

Meteorologist Kirstie Zontini talks about where and where to look for the shower.

After finding Venus and Mars early in the week, another special treat awaits you in the early morning sky heading into the weekend! 

The Orionid meteor shower will be peaking Friday night through Saturday morning. Debris from Haley's comet will hit the Earth's atmosphere, creating the show.

>> Warming trend continues; lower temps arrive next week

The Orionid shower gets its name because the meteors look like they are coming  from the constellation Orion. This year, 10 to 30 meteors per hour are possible. 

Skies will be dark all night because the moon will set early Friday evening, allowing for a good show. The best chance to see the most meteors may be from 2 a.m. until sunrise.
