Orionid meteors are visible from anywhere on Earth and can be seen anywhere across the sky.
Tom Kerss, an astronomer at the Royal Observatory Greenwich, said: "The Orionids is a modest shower, producing around 20 meteors per hour at best under absolutely ideal conditions".
"The Orionids are known to be fast and on the faint side, but can sometimes surprise you with an exceptionally bright meteor that might break up into fragments", Byrd wrote in her blog.
As Earth passes through Halley's orbit, pieces of rock plunge into our upper atmosphere and burn up, causing handsome shooting star displays. Orion is the namesake because the meteors appear to radiate from north of Betelgeuse, one of the constellation's most well-known stars.
The Orionid meteor shower happens annually when the Earth ploughs through dusty debris from Halley's Comet, named after astronomer Edmond Halley, who determined the comet's periodicity and contributed to further knowledge of the solar system.
Although the number of Orionids can not rival the three major meteor showers of the year - the Quadrantids, Perseids and Geminids - they are known for consistency in intensity and convenience for observation, as they are both bright and positioned near the zenith, the museum said.
