Columbia University Astronomy Professor Joe Patterson said while Haley's Comet won't be visible in the night sky until 2061, the Earth passes through its trailing debris field every October and April. Halley's comet last swept by the earth in 1986.
"The tail of Halley's comet is really long - it's an old comet and the tail doesn't have a lot of particles in it," he said. "A small number of these dust particles enter the Earth's atmosphere."
The Orionid meteor shower will typically deliver a "shooting star" once every three minutes, he said.
Patterson said the cosmic event typically draws interest from "hard-core meteor observers."
