WATCH LIVE: Orionid Meteor Shower Peaks Tonight
An annual meteor shower is set to peak tonight providing skywatchers with an ideal opportunity to see a “falling star.”
The Orionid meteor shower, deriving its name from the constellation Orion that the meteors appear to come from, occurs every year for approximately a week in late October. The prolific meteor shower is created from the debris coming off of Halley’s comet, which enters Earth’s atmosphere creating what appear to be “falling stars.”
You should be able to see up to 20 meteors per hour in the early morning hours on Tuesday. No telescope is required to view the meteor shower. NASA will be providing a webcast of the Orionid meteor shower starting at 10 p.m. EDT on Oct. 20 for those who are unable to view it due to poor weather or light pollution.

Brazilian collective Bicicleta Sem Freio just returned from a month long tour in Europe organized by JustKids. Dubbed the “JustKids Euro Tour”, Bicicleta Sem Freio stopped by six different cities to bring their good vibes to the residents. Passing through London, Berlin, Pinerolo, Gaeta, Terracina and Turin, BSF worked their magic on a series of 5 spectacular Street Art murals and worked with an old Italian master printer on an amazing screen print (last image, above). See more of their murals from the Euro Tour below.
