Orionids Oct 21-22, 2012

Don't forget that the Orionids peak on October 22. The best viewing time is 3-5 am on the morning of the 22nd, but people looking on the morning of Sunday Oct 21 should also see some decent meteors.

People loooking north-east should see roughly a meteor every 5 minutes (althought there will be longish stretches with no meteors, be patient).

When going out, do let a at least 5 minutes pass for your eyes to become dark adapted.

For a chart see Tuesdays weekly sky post.

Hi Ian,
Got my first time catch of an Orionid meteor in Exmouth.


Fairly good rate this morning, enough to keep the interest going.

cheers, Brayden
