This year's shower will peak during the evening of October 21.

Looking for a show at 2 a.m. this coming Monday morning to kick-start your week?

This year the moon will be almost full, which will diminish some of the meteors.

Halley's Comet passes Earth every 75 to 76 years and as it makes its way around the sun, it leaves a trail of gas and dust behind it, which can be seen when the debris crosses Earth.

Many people heading out to spot some shooting stars this weekend are in luck as mainly clear conditions are on tap for a large area of North America on Sunday night.

The Orionids are remnants of Haley's Comet, one of the most famous comets, which last flew Earth in 1986. "This comet leaves debris in its wake that strikes Earth's atmosphere most fully around October 20-22, while Earth intersects the comet's orbit, as it does every year at this time".

After the Orionids, stargazers will have to wait until the middle of November to see another meteor shower with the Northern Taurids peaking on Nov. 11 and the Leonids peaking on Nov. 17.

The Orionid meteors are named as such because they appear to spring from around the constellation Orion.

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

The moon will lead to subpar views for this night sky display.
