Like I mentioned last week, this past weekend was light struck by Halley’s comet offsprings in a dazzling feast for the eyes and spirit. The debris from the famed comet, which last visited Earth in 1986, helps produce up to 25 meteors per hour during the Orionid meteor shower. Thus, those lucky enough to be out of the city and with a clear night’s sky have been most certainly happy and grateful for this opportunity. Some have been even luckier and caught glimpses of hurling meteors slicing the sky on photo and film. If you’ve missed this year’s Orionids meteor shower, here are some of these most amazing photos I could find on the web. If you have some of your own or would like to share other photos of this weekend’s Orionids, please feel free to send some our way.
