Orionid meteor shower over the weekend

Editor 5
Found 20th Oct 2017
Absolutely love watching these, hopefully the weather holds out enough to get a decent view!

Apparently the best time to see it will be on the 22nd October.
There could be around 20 meteors visible per hour under very good conditions. Maybebe something worth doing with the kids? I'm sure they'll find it fascinating, then for the next few weeks, they'll want to make a rocket ship out of your fairy bottle, that still has 100 years of liquid left in it

That said, the best time to view is pretty late on at around midnight, so might be a little late for the little ones.
