Meteor shower and night sky

Do not miss again tonight the annual phenomenon of shooting stars, called Orionids, which culminates in the northern hemisphere. The Orionids appear to come from the constellation Orion and are created from materials that were left behind the Halley’s Comet.
The Moon of 28 days does us a favor by being at the minimum luminance and, cross your fingers, the clouds will be few during our observation.
The best time to observe them is, looking at the east, just after midnight and before dawn.  
In the night sky, you also see this season Orion constellation and Gemini in the east, the Square of Pegasus in the south, and the W of Cassiopeia in the north.
Do not forget to make a wish when the stars fall!
