Orionids 2019: Incredible meteor shower arrives next week - When is the Orionid peak?

How to view the Orionid meteor shower next week?

As with most meteor showers, Orionid-hunting is a game of patience.

On the night of the peak, try to find a wide-open area with an unobstructed view of the horizon, such as an empty field.

Try to avoid sources of light like buildings and cars as much as possible.

The Observatory said of the Orionids: “They can be seen with the naked eye so there's no need for binoculars or a telescope, though you will need to allow your eyes to adjust to the dark.

“The showers will continue at a reduced rate, so if the Moon obscures the peak, you may still be able to catch a few throughout the rest of October.”
