2014 Orionid Meteor Shower Peaks October 20 to 21

In 2014, the Orionid meter shower should peak between October 20 – 21. The best time for viewing the Orionid meteor shower  is between midnight (1 a.m. daylight time) and dawn no matter what time zone you’re in. An almost new Moon will make it easy to view the shower for both Northern and Southern Hemisphere observers. Halley’s comet causes the Orionid meteor shower. It is called Orionids because the meteors seem to emerge or radiate from the constellation Orion.
