The Orionid meteor shower peaked this morning just before dawn. Although this year is not optimal for watching the meteor shower, thanks to the bright waning gibbous moon, there was a report of a meteor sighting around 6AM this morning in South College Station.
Typically, on a dark moonless night, the Orionids exhibit 10-20 meteors per hour. The meteors originate from the constellation Orion the Hunter. The Orionids meteor shower is known for producing fast moving meteors that occasionally leave persistent trains.
There is still a chance you could spot one of the Orionid meteors late tonight and into tomorrow morning. The best time to view will be tomorrow morning before dawn.
