Keen stargazer?

You're in for a treat as the Orionid meteor shower peaks tomorrow night and it looks like plenty of clear skies for most of the UK.

The Orionids are a remnant of Comet Halley and at its peak you could see up to 20 shooting stars per hour. Orionid meteors are known to be very fast travelling at around 41 miles per second, and typically on the faint side, although with clear, dark skies you still have a good chance of spotting one with its persistent, long trail.
