Orionid Meteor Shower

The Orionids are here! The meteors have been visible since last night in the northern hemisphere. They are derived from their radiant, near the constellation, Orion (one of my favorites). The belt of Orion constellation is made up of 3 stars which exactly line up with the 3 pyramids of Giza, as well as other pyramids in the Mayan ruins.

WEEKEND METEOR SHOWER: The Orionid meteor shower peak on Saturday, Oct. 22nd, when Earth passed through a stream of debris from Halley's comet. As many as 26 meteors per hour are visible from rural areas, according to the International Meteor Organization.
