    Orionids from Chester, VA


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     BikerMexican photographed the Orionid meteor shower on October 21 from Chester, Virginia. He captured the images at 5 in the morning, and says when he initially looked at the sky he was surprised by the extensive cloud coverage. He says the meteor shower was beautiful. 'I had anticipated a relatively slow procession of meteorites, but was pleased that I was able to capture so many at their rate,' he said. 'The shower is best described as quick streaks of light dashing across the sky lasting but only a fraction of a second.' You can see more of his photography on his Facebook page.
    - Jareen, CNN iReport producer

    Photographed the orionids from Chester, VA around 5AM.
