On October 15, scientists noticed that Earth is passing through a tributary of remains from Halley's Comet. This means that time has come when we can witness the annual Orionids meteor shower from earth.
With the announcement of the offspring of Halley's Comet about to play a show in the skies of PATCH TOWN, there have been queries regarding the best viewing spots in South Windsor. Public is excited to know that when and from where they can witness the best view.
According to scientists, the shower will be at its peak at the night of Saturday, October 20 and it will continue till the dawn on October 21.
Making 15 meteors visible every hour, this year the moon will be setting around midnight. Due to this the sky will remain dark enough to make the show brighter.
During the show, the stars will be seen triggering from Orion's club and piercing Taurus the Bull, the Gemini twins, Leo the Lion and then in the end Canis Major, home of Sirius, which is also known as the brightest visible star of the sky. (leaving sun aside)
Another exciting and unique feature of this meteor show is that yellow and green colors are produced by the meteors from Orionids and a strange fireball too gets released rarely.
