The Orionid meteor shower

Predicted peak: October 21, 2022, at 18 UTC.

When to watch: You might see an Orionid meteor any early morning this week. But, in the first part of the week, the moon will be up between midnight and dawn, obscuring the view on October 17, 18 and 19. By the morning of October 20, with a slimmer moon in the sky and the shower nearing its peak, you’ll likely spot more meteors. And – by the morning of the shower’s peak on October 21 – the moon will be a slim crescent. By then the moon will enhance, not obscure, your enjoyment of 2022’s Orionid meteor shower.
