Although the Orionids meteor shower can be viewed from October 2 to November 7, your best bet is this Thursday and Friday (10/20/16-10/21/16). During its peak, expect to catch around 20 meteors per hour if you keep your eyes toward the constellation Orion. This should be a slightly better show than the Draconids earlier in the month, as there are brighter meteors and more of them. If you plan to watch, make sure you find a location away from city lights!
