You may have spotted a meteor or two streaking across the sky this month, but the big show is coming this weekend.
These shooting stars will be visible to the naked eye and best seen in areas with low light pollution, the most dramatic sights will visible between just before midnight on Sunday October 21 into dawn on the Monday morning.
The Orionid meteor shower is set to peak this weekend from October 21-22, but the moon could get in the way.
The shower peaks on October 21, but the meteors may be visible as early as today after midnight, according to the National Weather Service.
The particles you'll catch buzzing across the sky are from Halley's Comet, the famous celestial cluster of ice and dust that passes by Earth every 75 to 76 years.
This year the moon will be almost full, which will diminish some of the meteors.

Because these meteors result from Earth hitting a stream of debris head-on, the Orionid meteors are some of the fastest.
NASA meteor expert Bill Cooke told Space.com that the moon may wash some meteors out, but about 15-20 should be visible per hour.
What's more, these speeds make it the second fastest shower of the year, second only to the Leonid Meteor Shower.
