|This map shows the sky facing south around 5 a.m. Sunday morning October 21, 2012. The Orionids will appear to radiate from the “shoulder” of Orion the Hunter not far from the brilliant planet Jupiter. Created with Stellarium ~ from Astro Bob's site - which has a lot more information; you should check it out.|
Orion is one of the easiest constellations to recognize, at least around here. When I was out West, in the northern California mountains, the sky was so full and differently oriented, it would take awhile to find thr Hunter, and the timing was different by far. But once you find him, that's where you'll want to tune in for the show.
|Yes, these are fireworks, not the Orionid meteor shower, but I hope it's sort of like this.|
Have a star studded Saturday. Do something (s)elestial.
