Halley’s comet, almost #Orionids

If you’re born after 1986 then you’ve never saw it, and we all have to make it until 2061 before you can see it again.. But Halley’s comet is kind-of coming back tonight. Or at least bits of it. Every time it comes near the Sun it leaves bits of itself behind. Particles, Debris, dirt. Every year we run into those bits, like flies on a windscreen. Those bits make up the Orionid’s shooting star storm. And you can see it tonight. Just look up.
