Remnants of the famed Halley's comet are giving skywatchers some weekend thrills across the globe.
A shooting star display was sparked by the Orionid meteor shower, appearing to emanate from the constellation Orion, the Hunter (hence the name).
The Orionid shower was created by a dust stream from Halley's comet, which visits our solar system once every 75 years. Its most recent visit was in 1986. Orionid meteors are supposed to be visible with clear, dark skies through the weekend.
