The IMO Orionids preliminary data has come out, and they had a ZHR or 40+ for the 21st and 23rd, and 50+ for the 22nd. Predicted ZHR's wre in the region of 20. A fantastic animation of the Orionids as seen from Melbourne, Australia (despite the light pollution) has been producedby Bert Van Donkelaar. Animations of the period 21-22 October and 22-23 October can be seen at the linked Ice In Space forums. (Tip of the hat to Bellatrix).
