Small bits broken off from Halley’s Comet, dubbed theOrionid meteor shower, can be seen across the sky this weekend. If you have the proper equipment, you can watch the event as it happens outside, but there is a way you can also watch it from the safety of your own home, doing what you are doing right now!

The event should have reached its peak tonight on Friday, October 20, but will last until Sunday morning. On both Friday and Saturday, the event should be visible during the late evening. From a dark place, an expected 10 to 15 meteors per hour can be seen, according to EarthSky. Since it is only one day after the new moon, no moonlight is expected to effect visibility during the shower this weekend.

And before anyone asks, meteor showers like this are what people think are shooting stars!
