ARTPIL / Prescription .067
A Trail of Shooting Stars

 

The Orionid Meteor shower will peak this weekend as the earth passes through the trail of debris shed by Halley’s comet as it passed through our inner solar system during its 75-year orbit around the sun.

Named Orionid because they appear to emanate out of the constellation Orion, one of the more recognizable constellations, this meteor shower will be most visible after midnight tonight and the pre-dawn hours for the following few mornings delivering as many as 20 shooting stars an hour, sometimes traveling over 200,000 kilometers per hour.

Tickets to the show are free. Deniers are also invited to look on.

Welcome to the .067 edition of Prescriptions. Here is our review of the week in the arts.
