PSA: Orionids peak tonight

The annual Orionids meteor shower peaks tonight. At its max, we should expect to see around 20 meteors an hour. As the name might suggest, they appear to radiate from the constellation Orion. I full expect to see some widefield Banard's loop images tomorrow featuring the Orionids :P
