RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - The Orionid Meteor Shower peaks on Oct. 21 early in the morning. If you are up between 2 a.m. and 5 a.m., you could catch a decent show. The Orionids aren't one of the bigger showers on the calendar but the absence of moonlight could help this year be a good one.
A clear sky with low humidity will be an added bonus.
Bundle up and enjoy the show!
