Saturn is visible in the western sky at dusk. It sets a few hours later into the night.

High in the sky is the constellation of Hercules. It contains the Hercules star cluster, one of the most brilliant star clusters we can see.

The night of October 21/morning of October 22 marks the peak of the annual Orionid meteor shower. This is one of two showers that result from Comet Halley.
