THE GALAXY -  Make sure you take a look at the night sky this weekend. Shooting stars will be visible all over the world -- as the Orionid meteor shower hits its peak.

The Orionids make an appearance every year between October 2nd and November 7th.

The peak occurs when Earth passes through a debris stream left by the famous Halley's Comet.

The best time to see the meteors will be in the short period right when the moon is setting and the sun is beginning to rise.
