Tonight (Sunday) is a clear sky in Hampton Roads. PERFECT conditions to see the debris from Halley's Comet that is causing a Orionid Meteor Shower. Don't worry, as much of a science geek I am I didn't know what a "Orionid" is. That's why we have Wiki...so clicky right here for that.
ANYwho...WE are in the perfect spot on the rock called Earth to see this shower. Granted the best time to see it is when the moon is going down and before the sun comes up. THAT MEANS 5am Monday morning-ish. BUT that's because its the darkest then. If you're near the water just look away from the moon. OR you can sit back and watch what you can as it comes on this LIVE feed below.
I'm not going to act like i'm an expert on this so CLICK HERE for a good breakdown from accuweather.
Meteor showers, like the Orionids, occur on a yearly basis when the Earth passes through a trail of debris left behind by a comet. “This shower is sparked by the famous Halley's Comet,” Samuhel said. This debris vaporizes and glows bright as it enters the planet’s atmosphere and sometimes leaves behind a trail of vapor or smoke that is visible for one of two seconds.
