Subject: Skywatchers set for Draconid meteor shower

Written By: Philip Eno on 10/07/20 at 7:28 am

October is set to be a bumper month for spotting shooting stars in the night sky. The Draconid meteor shower is set to reach its peak on Wednesday evening. It's estimated that around five shooting stars should be visible overhead every hour - weather permitting, of course. Meteor showers are usually associated with comets; as these balls of ice and dust orbit the Sun, it releases clouds of dust and ice. Meteor showers, or shooting stars, can be seen when the Earth passes through streams of tiny debris, causing streaks of light. If you miss the Draconids, there is the chance to see other meteor showers later in the month.
