As the UAI explains, orionids arose from comet debris Haley During previous perihelion passes. They typically show diffuse and irregular clock rates and perhaps more extremes. Although meteorites are often faint in brightness, they often appear mixed with… racing cars Among other things, more recently, more sustained rates of meteorites have been observed, but with variations in frequency in general. Above 20-30 meteors/hour.
This year, the radiant, or the point from which the meteors appear to shoot, will be observable from around midnight, reaching its maximum height at dawn at more than 60 degrees. The nights between October 21 and 22, and the following days from October 22 to 23, will be peak nights. Particularly favorable for observationDue to the complete absence of lunar disturbance (in the map il The sky of October 22 at about one o’clock in the morning).
