Thanks for the tip Eileen!

"Earth is passing through a stream of debris from Halley's Comet, the source
of the Orionids," meteor expert Bill Cooke of NASA's Meteoroid Environment
Office said in a statement. "Flakes of comet dust hitting the atmosphere
should give us dozens of meteors per hour."

If its is cloudy you can watch it online.
