The Orionids meteor shower is a prominent feature in the night sky during October, especially around Oct. 20 and 21. Made from the dust of Halley’s Comet, the meteor shower is named as such because it appears to emerge from the Constellation Orion.

Orionids can be viewed from here in Texas if you look up to the southwestern sky, given there is a clear forecast and little light pollution from where you are viewing it. Head out away from the city to get a glimpse of these falling stars!
