The Draconid meteor showers will light up the night sky

The next couple of nights will clear enough for you to be able to see the Draconid meteor showers. These meteor showers are sometimes called the Giacobinids. These meteor showers come from the northern constellation Draco the Dragon and favor temperate regions in the north, so we are one of the lucky locations to see this light show. It won’t be as brilliant as the Perseid meteor shower, but you will be able to enjoy it for the next couple of nights as skies will become clear. Here’s more on when and where to watch it.
