Orionid meteor shower 2022: When, where & how to see it

The Orionid meteor shower will peak between Oct. 21 and Oct. 22 and will remain active until early November.

Viewing conditions for the Orionids are favorable this year with relatively little moonlight getting in the way of spotting the streaking meteors. Sometimes the Orionid meteor shower produces spectacular displays of up to 80 meteors an hour, but in recent years it has produced more modest displays of about 20 or 30 visible meteors per hour.
