Orionid meteor shower from Halley's Comet will light up skies and produce 20 shooting stars an hour



Halley's Comet is a comet visible from Earth every 75 to 76 years. Halley is the only known short-period comet that is regularly visible to the naked eye from planet Earth.
Dust from the comet will produce a meteor shower this week that could be visible across Grimsby, if the weather allows. The shower is called The Orionid meteor shower, which may be seen over large proportions of the sky.
Halley's Comet has not been visible from Earth since 1986 and will next appear in mid-2061. It is the only naked-eye comet that might appear twice in a human lifetime.
