  • Orionid Meteor Shower Brings Some Pretty Spectacular Photos - The Huffington Post Australia

The Orionid meteor shower will peak early Sunday morning before sunrise as the earth passes through dust left behind by the famous Halley's Comet that enter the earth's atmosphere and burn up.

There is a chance of thundershowers tonight according to Environment Canada, but the clouds will likely clear by the time the show starts.

The best time to view the meteor shower is between midnight and dawn on Friday or Saturday night from anywhere on Earth.

The meteor shower is usually visible from all over the planet if weather conditions are right, and this year we're lucky enough to have a low-light moon that won't get in the way of the display.

These particles are coming from the Halley's Comet or Comet 1P/Halley, which swings by Earth every 75 to 76 years.

The meteors will be the brightest and most visible this weekend, with the space rocks hurtling earthwards at speeds of up to 148,000 miles per hour.

The meteors will appear to originate from the constellation Orion, hence the name "Orionids". Experts recommend secluded spots far away from city lights for the best viewing.

Step out of your homes around 1:30 am and let your eyes adjust to the dark for about 20 minutes.

And bear in mind that you won't need binoculars or telescopes, since they're only useful for stationary objects.

Cooke said the tiny comet fragments are called meteoroids and they are as small as a grain of sand.

The best way to spot Orion is to train your eyes on the southwest sky and search for three bright stars in an nearly straight line - Orion's belt. The meteors heat up due to the friction from air resistance, creating a bright, fiery trail commonly referred to as a shooting star.
