Oriniods Meteor Shower Peaks Friday Night

GREENSBORO, NC -- Look up on Friday night for a chance to catch some meteors flying through the sky. Weather will be great for viewing the annual Orionids Meteor Shower.

The Orionids Meteor Shower happens each year around this time, and typically features about 10 to 20 meteors per hour. The shooting stars will be originating in the eastern sky, but will streak across the whole sky.

If you're looking to see the meteors, your best bet is just to get someplace dark enough after midnight and then just wait patiently. 10 to 20 meteors per hour isn't a lot, so they'll be few and far between.
