INDIANAPOLIS — Want to see something amazing this weekend? Just take a look up at the night sky.

If the sky is clear and you can get away from the light pollution of the nearest big city, you’ll be able to see the annual Orionid meteor shower at its peak.

The shower happens each October as the earth moves through the debris from Halley’s Comet.

You won’t need a telescope to enjoy the Orionids. The only thing you need is your naked eye, turned toward Orion in the eastern sky. says the best time to watch is between midnight and 2 a.m. Saturday, when the shower is at its peak. Meteors should also be visible at around the same time on Sunday.
