The Orionid meteor shower is headed our way, and it could be very visible this weekend! They are framed by some of the brightest stars in the night sky, adding to their spectacle.

You may have seen a few stray meteors zooming across the sky, leftover Draconids whose peak passed earlier this month or leftover meteors from the South Taurid shower that's still ongoing.

WGRZ shared the news of what could be an epic meteor shower headed our way starting tonight and lasting through Sunday morning!

The shower peaks on October 21, but the meteors may be visible as early as today after midnight, according to the National Weather Service.

Police have said that numerous victims were dismembered beyond recognition, and it will take several days to identify the dead. At the time of the incident the gates of the manned level crossing were closed and the train was given the green signal.

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.

Get far away from city lights.

However, you will need to be somewhere dark with little or no light pollution.

In the short time before dawn this upcoming October 21-22, you will be able to experience peak meteor-watching, but if you look up on the other days in this window, you might still catch meteors in the sky. It takes the comet 76 years to orbit the sun, so it will enter Earth's atmosphere in 2061.
