The October Orionid Meteor Shower 2012 guarantees a spectacular display of meteors because of the timing of the Full and New Moon around the Orionid Meteor Shower 2012. It peaks on October 21, 2012, typically it peaks on October 22, but this year is a leap year. The Orionid Shower can bee seen across the globe. Therefore, you can see it anywhere there is not thick cloud cover.
Here locally we expect clear skies and the best viewing time will be between 11pm tomorrow night into early Sunday morning.
By the way, the Orionid Meteor Shower is named after the constellation. Orion because the meteors look like they're coming from just north of Betelguese, which is Orion's star. It's basically debris left by Halley's Comet. It takes up a wide distance between the Earth and the Moon.
It can also be viewed online.
