Meteor Shower To Peak Tonight

Tonight will be a good time to make a wish on a falling star.  The Orionid meteor shower will peak on Sunday night.  Astronomers say stargazers could see around 15 to 20 meteors an hour.  

Each meteor can travel around 148-thousand miles an hour as they rocket through Earth's atmosphere.  

The meteor shower is caused by the Earth moving into a field of fragments left behind by Halley's Comet.
