Draconids radiant

Several studies predict that on 8 October between 16h and 21h UT, Earth will encounter trails of dust produced by comet 21P/Giacobini–Zinner in the late 19th and early 20th century. This is expected to produce enhanced meteor activity, with apparent rates likely to reach about 1 meteor per minute near 20h Universal Time. Details can be found on our special Draconids page.
