This is a composite image showing 143 Orionid meteors captured between October 17 and October 21 by an allsky video camera. Although the Moon interfered with visual observation, it is less of a limitation for video observations. In this composite, the Moon has been digitally removed. Meteors not part of the Orionid shower have also been removed.
