The Orionid meteor shower was estimated to hit its peak Sunday and Monday, as Earth passed through the dust that Halley's Comet left behind. The Orionids are known for producing bright fireballs, which are best seen past midnight and before dawn. "With city lights and the moonlight, you might be lucky to see two an hour. But if they are bright, it will be like free fireworks," said Anthony Cook of the Griffith Observatory in Los Angeles.
