Where Can I See the Orionids?

It's called Orionids because the meteors seem to emerge or radiate from the constellation Orion.

 

A First Quarter Moon will make this meteor shower easy to see in both the Northern and Southern Hemisphere. While you can easily see a shooting star looking straight up, the table below shows the exact direction of the Orionids from your location.
