DON'T MISS: Orionid meteor shower set to light up night sky tonight

Orionid Meteor Shower Brings Some Pretty Spectacular Photos - The Huffington Post Australia

A meteor streaks across the sky in the early morning as people watching during the Perseid meteor shower in Ramon Carter near the town of Mitzpe Ramon, southern Israel, August 13, 2015.

The meteor shower is caused by particles that are dispersed by Comet 1P/Halley, better known as Halley's Comet.

This year, you'll be able to see Orionids between October 2 and November 7, but the shower will peak between Friday, October 20 and Sunday, October 22.

The most meteors will fall between October 20-22.

If you are headed out to view them, a jacket and a sleeping bag to lay horizontally on the ground would be a good idea.

Thereafter you will need too look up for Orion's club if you live in the northern hemisphere, or look down if you live below the equator. Watch it with naked eyes as binoculars and telescopes won't help in improving the view because they are created to see more stationary objects in the sky.

The Met Office said: "The Orionids are a remnant of Comet Halley and at its peak you could see up to 20 shooting stars per hour". During the fall, the Earth's orbit around the sun matches up with the debris left behind by the comet, which burns up in the Earth's atmosphere, causing the visible meteors that you can see.

Some Orionids will be very fast and bright as they can whiz by at up to 148,000 miles per hour (238,000 km/h) in relative speed.

The Orionids are so-called because they appear to be coming from the direction of the constellation Orion, although they can be viewed over a wide area.

NASA said that the comet would be visible in the darker part of the sky nearby the Orion constellation.
