That means it won’t be within our view for at least another 39 years.However, tiny traces left in its wake will come into our view starting Thursday night. The peak of the shower will be early Friday morning between 3 and 5 a.m. Astronomers estimate we could see anywhere between 10 to 20 meteors per hour.For those people who are not early birds, the shower will be ongoing this week, and you might be able to catch a meteor or two at any point. Your best chances to spot one will be affected by how much light pollution is in your area.Weather may also be a factor in viewing it, as scattered high clouds may obscure views if they linger into Friday morning.Halley’s Comet is also associated with the Orionid Meteor Shower that comes around October.
