If you wake up on time (set at least three alarms), all you have to do is look for the constellation Orion with its belt of three starts in the eastern sky. You'll see the meteors throughout the sky, but they'll appear to originate from the area of the sky above Orion's Belt near the red supergiant star Betelgeuse. But don't rub your tired eyes or blink too much while you gaze skyward, as the Orionids have the fastest meteors of any shower.
"The Orionids, because they're moving so fast, they burn up very quickly," Bill Cooke, who leads NASA’s Meteoroid Environment Office, recently told Thrillist. "In other words, you blink, you're going to miss them."
