— After finding Venus and Mars early in the week, another special treat awaits you in the early morning sky this weekend!
The Orionid meteor shower will put on a good show Friday night into Saturday morning, and Saturday night into Sunday morning.
Debris from Haley's comet will hit Earth's atmosphere. 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.
This weekend skies will cooperate for great viewing of the Orionid meteor shower!
Temperatures will drop into the middle 50s overnight Saturday into Sunday. The moon will set around 8:14 p.m. so skies will remain dark. Some high clouds will be out there Saturday night, but overall it will still be a good night to view.

— There will be several chances to see the International Space Station fly over Dayton this week, said Storm Center 7 Meteorologist Kirstie Zontini.
Thursday the ISS will appear in the west/southwest sky at 9:25 p.m. It will pass by in six minutes reaching up 53 degrees above the horizon before disappearing in the northeast sky.
The space station was also visible Tuesday night and early Wednesday.
The International Space Station will look like a bright star or plane moving across the sky except it won't flash or blink.
