It’s also responsible for two annual meteor showers, one of which peaks this coming week—the Orionid meteor shower.

A meteor streaks across the night sky during Orionid meteor shower in Turkey in 2018.

Based on reports of a bright comet being visible in the night sky in 1532, 1607 and 1682 he predicted that it was the same comet, and that it would return to the inner Solar System in 1758.

The debris stream from Halley’s Comet causes the Orionids meteor shower but it also causes the Eta Aquarids meteor shower in May.

The Eta Aquarids meteor shower—known for fast-moving meteors and numbering around 10-20 per hour at its peak—will take place between April 19 and May 28, 2021, and peak on the night of May 5, 2021.

The next major meteor shower is the Leonids, which will peak in the very early hours of November 17, 2020 in dark, moonless skies.

Expect about 15 fast-moving “shooting stars” per hour for the Leonids meteor shower in 2020.

However, the one to get prepared for is the Geminid meteor shower, the year’s very best, which will peak early on December 14, 2020 and unleash as many as 120 “shooting stars” per hour—and just a few hours before a precious total solar eclipse.
