The meteor shower normally begins on October 15th and last until the end of the month. The peak of the celestial display is normally in the early hours of the 20th to 22nd of the month, often before dawn. If we are lucky we might see up to 20 meteors an hour.
Shooting stars from the Orionids generally move very fast due the angle they hit the atmosphere. They are also famous for leaving spectacular meteor trails. Tonight at 20:38 you can also see the International Space Station passing directly overhead.
