The Orionids happen each year in mid-October and sometimes into November. Every October they become visible for several nights when the Earth intersects Halley’s orbit.

The meteors, also known as shooting stars, are named Orionids because they appear to radiate from the constellation Orion, named after a hunter of Greek lore. The radiant, or apparent point of origin, for this shower will be near the red giant Alpha Orionis (Betelguese), but meteors may occur from any point in the sky.
Just make sure you head to somewhere remote, with no light pollution or tall buildings/trees in the way.
“There’s a little too much cloud across the northern part of the country, so I don’t think it’s a great night for them”, Law said.
“Away from city lights is ideally where you want to be to see more meteors”.

Those who hope for a sight of Uranus should look for a blue-green body, visible to the naked eye when looking to the skies in the southeast.
