YAHOO.COM - The Orionid meteor shower is raining bits of the famed Halley's Comet
on Earth this weekend to the delight of stargazers around the world.
The 2012 Orionid meteor shower peaked early Sunday (Oct. 21), with
forecasters predicting up to 25 meteors an hour for patient stargazers
with clear skies well away from city lights. Based on accounts sent into
SPACE.com, the meteor shower did not disappoint.
In Norway, photographer Tommy Eliassen captured a spectacular view of the Orionids and Earth's dazzling northern lights.
"An Orionid meteor streaking over the sky, the aurora borealis in the
northern horizon and the Milky Way over my camp," Eliassen told
SPACE.com in an email from Korgfjellet, Hemnes in Norway. "A very cold
but perfect night to photograph the Orionid meteor shower." click here to read more
