How to Watch Orionid Meteor Shower

How to Watch the Incredible Orionids Meteor Shower This Weekend

The sparks that shoot across the heavens every mid-to late October aren't fireworks or orbiting satellites. It's the Orionid meteor shower, which peaks on Friday, Oct. 21 and Saturday, Oct 22. Earthlings will be able to see about 20 meteor sightings per hour, according to NASA. Though this will take place during a waning gibbous moon, which will make the sky extra bright with light, you should still see a spectacular show.

If you're lucky enough to get outside, set your alarm for a few hours before dawn on both Friday and Saturday mornings and get as far away from city lights as possible. Check out this interactive sky map as a guide to the night skies in your area, and take it with you on your Orionid meteor shower watch to see how many constellations you can spot. If you're stuck at home, the Slooh space camera will be live streaming the event, starting at 8 p.m. EDT on Oct. 20.

I observed the Orionids last year and it was amazing! I've found great viewing information on this site: - Hope you all enjoy the show!

New and old Science A new and Progressive Science shows how Wavevolution, or the transformation from waves to atoms, is the connecting link that closes the circle of science to open new horizons never seen before. The bureaucracy of traditional science prevents the recognition of any event unless certain criteria are first met. The problem of this science is buried deep right in the compilation of these "laws" or criteria introduced by a few scientists in the name of all science and from their erroneous understanding of the relation between Space and Time. This antiquated system of rules also results in misleading theories.   For example, the Space is not “curved”. In Einstein's paradigm, a stone that falls on the ground from the window of a moving train also marks one parabola in Space. Although, this path is only apparent since also the Earth is moving and the Time spent by the stone to reach the ground has also changed to some degree that imaginary vertical line. At the Time of the initial Movement when the stone falls from the window it exists only one perpendicular Space which is not anymore the same as the stone continues to move until it hits the ground. If the scientist had known that the coordinates of Space in Time are unique and unrepeatable then all the rest would have also been "straight". That perpendicular is straight but accounted as “curve” because of the limits of science unable to recognize the issue of simultaneity. In reference to each body on each moment in Time there are always only two coordinates in Space for one perpendicular. And with two coordinates there is no curve. The perpendicular changes in Time but Einstein believed that the concept of Space is independent from the concept of Time.   Another example is in the special theory of relativity which denies all absolutes and meanings of truth. This is in regard to Einstein's example of two beams of light hitting one same embankment of a railroad on two Points: Point A and Point B. In between the two there is also the middle point, Point M. If one train was running over that track then on the train we would also have Point A1 on the wagon of the train correspondent to above Point A and also one other corresponding Point B1 right above Point B. We would also have on the train the corresponding Point M1 above Point M. Einstein's theory is that as for Point M (not moving because on the embankment) those two beams are simultaneous and equidistant instead for the passenger sitting on M1 and moving towards Point B1 (and also toward Point B) the two beams are not simultaneous because the beam in Point B1 is being approached by the moving train, therefore closer to M1. In this example, while Einstein’s concept of Time is rigidly kept unchanged in regard to the embankment instead the concept of Space is extended to also the next moment in Time when the traveler will move even if in that precise instant the traveler has not moved yet. Since the concept of simultaneity had been put aside, Einstein considered Time to be the same while Space instead had changed.   Also, this same scientist erroneously believed that all colors in the light spectrum travel at the same speed. Much confusion comes from these approximations.   One new Awareness will be found in between the winding creativity of the human mind and the rigid logic of numbers.
