: By Glenn ChapleThe winter night sky, dominated by mighty Orion, is rich with deep-sky splendors. If you can brave the cold, you’ll be rewarded by some of the finest double and triple stars the night sky has to offer.

should have an opportunity to observe a handful of the brighter
meteors streaking across the sky.
