How I took a meteor shower

However, pollution can prevent your view of the Orionid meteor shower as in the case with most night time skywatching. Skygazers are having a field day as the Orionid meteor shower has reached its best viewing.

DESCRIBED by Nasa as "one of the most attractive meteor showers of the year", the Orionid meteor shower is doubtless one of the celestial calendar's most impressive events.

The meteors will be the brightest and most visible this weekend, with the space rocks hurtling earthwards at speeds of up to 148,000 miles per hour.

But experts advise to look away from Orion.

The best time to head out for the shower is after sundown, in the early morning hours of Saturday.

What are the Orionid meteors? During the fall, the Earth's orbit around the sun matches up with the debris left behind by the comet, which burns up in the Earth's atmosphere, causing the visible meteors that you can see.

The Met Office said: "The Orionids are a remnant of Comet Halley and at its peak you could see up to 20 shooting stars per hour".

NASA urged the public to watch the night sky before dawn in a dark area, adding that about 20 meteors might be seen every hour.

Tom Kerss stated that Meteors can appear anywhere in the sky and it is better to look at them in the eastern direction.

Halley's Comet itself is expected to next visit Earth on July 28 2061.
