On the heels of telling you about one of my very favorite smartphone apps yesterday, this weekend will give you a good chance to take it for a spin with a great show in the sky expected.

This weekend, astronomers are expecting a more active than usual Orionid Meteor Shower. I've mentioned before how much I love catching a meteor shower, and this weekend should be a good opportunity. It's supposed to be relatively clear, and the moon shouldn't be too bright.

If you're able to find somewhere away from city lights, grab a blanket, a warm coat, and watch the sky!

Do you know of anywhere in Ocean County that's free of light pollution and nice and dark (and of course open to the public!). Tell us where you'd suggest going in the comments section!
