The Orionid meteor shower peaks tonight, best time to look after 23.30, expected to be approx 30 per hour.

"expected to be approx 30 per hour."

It's 00:49 now, and so far I haven't seen a single one. Hope springs eternal, but I'm planning to watch the Rugby world cup final in just over seven hours time, so I can't wait forever. Perhaps just half an hour longer...

Just given up myself (3am), saw several small and a three or four good ones, but very disappointing overall.
