The morning of October 21st was the peak of the 2014 Orionids Meteorite shower and as always I try to witness these celestial events! This night was very little moon (none actually) and clear which made for great viewing. We are viewing dust from Halley’s Comet.
I set the alarm for 1:30am and saw 7 in about 45 minutes. The shower was not as active as I remember the Orionids being; so I will probably head out tomorrow morning and check out the other side of the peak. Here are a couple of meteorites I caught on camera.
