Midnight Meteors – Orionids 2020

Midnight Meteors – Orionids 2020

Tuesday (Oct. 20) 11:30pm – Wednesday (Oct. 21) 1:30 am

The meteor shower created by the debris of Comet 1P/Halley each year when the Earth passes through its orbit appears to us to emanate from the constellation Orion, and hence this shower is called the Orionids. The Orionids are classified as a Class I Major Shower by the American Meteor Society, meaning that the shower’s rate of visible meteors show significant activity on a year-to-year basis. We expect to see about twenty meteors in an hour. This shower is predicted to peak on the evening of October 20, and its meteors will be most visible to us after Orion rises and our eyes are dark adjusted, radiating from a point in the eastern sky above the star Betelgeuse.

Come join us for a short orientation to the sky at 11:30pm and then a sublime wait for the chance meteor over the two hours following as Orion rises, reclined in our zero-gravity chairs, on Tuesday 11:30pm to Wednesday, October 21 from 1:30am.

This event is weather-dependent and will be cancelled by e-mail 24 hours before the scheduled start time in the event of cloud cover forecast greater than 20% overcast.

Dress appropriately for being still in the nighttime outdoor weather. Blankets and warm beverages are welcome.
