Draconid Meteor Shower Peaks October 7

 

The Draconid meteor shower will peak on October 7, 2012. The Draconids are best viewed from the Northern Hemisphere. The meteor shower starts shortly after dark however there will be some moonlight as the moon is in the last quarter. This meteor shower usually produces a small number of meteors per hour most years but has been known on rare occasion to have hundreds of meteors in a single hour.
