Old Halley's Comet won't be around till 2061 but that won't stop it from sending a few snappy meteors our way this weekend. The annual Orionid meteor shower peaks on Sunday morning, Oct. 22nd between the hours of 2 and 6 a.m. local time. You can expect to see about 25 meteors an hour shoot from Orion's upraised club from dark skies. And the moon, right around new, will give no guff.
