Metro Vancouverites were privy to the Draconid Meteor Shower earlier this month, but they will see an even more dazzling display this week.

This week's clear skies are providing a rare opportunity for early-morning views of the Orionid meteor shower, one of the brightest and most attractive of the year. During the peak, 15-20 meteors per hour will likely be visible, though the annual shower has before peaked at upwards of 80 meteors per hour.
