Speaking of Meteors
Check out this Astronomy Picture of the Day of the Orionids.
Comet T1 levy is a recently discovered periodic comet (5.22 years) that may have some interesting meteor showers associated with it. There is a possibility that there will be an outburst (althought not strong) in the constellation Cephus on the last day of 2006 (31-12-06) and possibly one in 2009. More will be certain when the orbit is refined with further observations.
Still with the moon almost new, it will be worth watching.
