Orionid Meteor shower this weekend

This weekend, weather permitting, we should see more meteors or shooting stars than normal. The annual Orionid meteor shower peaks over the weekend. The basic tip for observing meteors is simply go outside and look up. No telescope or binoculars are necessary, in fact they are no real use for meteors. For more details on how to observer I'll simple refer you to Stuart's article on Cumbrian Sky.

If you fancy having a go at photographing meteors check out this advice on Space.com.

Fingers crossed for clear skies.
