Seeing a "falling star" on any given night is always a fun thing. But how about seeing many of them in one night? How about seeing 20-25 of them an hour? Well if that sounds like something right up your alley, then late tonight and early tomorrow morning, you'll want to be outside!
The Orionid meteor shower is a result of debris from the famous Halley's comet (not visible) when earth crosses the comet's orbit. This meteor shower is visible every year at this time.
The best time to see these multiple "falling stars" will be between midnight and before the sun comes up. Your best bet would be to get far away from city lights and look everywhere as they won't be in one particular part of the sky.
