Keep an eye out for the Orionid meteor shower over the coming few night, especially if you’re up at dawn. The meteors, which are space debris left behind by Comet Halley (pictured) will be visible as they vaporize in our upper atmosphere at around 100km above the Earth’s surface.
In ancient times, meteors – also known as shooting stars – were considered omens of great change, so be ready to move with the times! Photo via NASA.
