Tonight is the night the constellation Draco the Dragon will be shooting out meteors aka shooting stars!
The Draconid shower will produce the most meteors tonight and the thin waxing moon means the sky will be dark! Better viewing!
What’s great about this shower is that it’s best viewed at nightfall, not in the early hours of the morning like most meteor showers.
So grab the kids, lay out on the ground, preferably on one of grandma’s old quilts, feet pointing northward and enjoy!
For more detailed and scientific information about the Draconid Meteor shower check out the article in Earth Sky Magazine.
I love hearing from you! Connect with me on Facebook, I’d LOVE to be your friend!
