Orionids meteor shower will soon happen. Know when to start spotting a shooting star

Every year, stunning shooting stars are on display, and likewise, you can spot a number of shooting stars as more than twenty meteors come down within the time span of an hour in Devon and Cornwall. 

Like every year, this year too, it has been predicted to happen in the month of October only. During this time, the earth passes from the area filled with the debris of Halley’s Comet. 

Reportedly, the debris tends to tend to burn down itself in the Earth’s atmosphere, which makes it seem like a sky full of shooting stars or beautiful firework streaks. 

According to NASA reports, this year, the shower is predicted to take place on October 22. However, the scientists have circulated the word to keep a notice of the sky through the preceding days, so that you don’t miss out on the beautiful sight. 

If you are lucky enough, you may also get the chance to watch a meteor breakdown which will look something like a firework; scattered throughout the sky. 

Even NASA has described the shower as the most beautiful and brightening one of all showers because the Oniroid meteors are known to possess the most brightness and speed, unlike any other meteors, in the Science history.
