Of all the annual showers that decorate our night skies, the Orionids have the distinction of being near the top of NASA's most handsome list, thanks to its lucky placement among some of the most brilliant stars visible to the human eye.
NASA estimates that at the event's peak on Friday night, viewers will be able to see as many as 20 streaks of light flying through the sky per hour.

Look to the southeast sky and the constellation Orion - thus the name Orionid - to catch the action.
