Draconid Meteor Shower

Here's where you get off topic and off center....Keep it nice, keep it clean, no sniping, no flaming. After that, anything goes.

Draconid Meteor Shower

Post by circumspice »

Don't forget to watch the Draconid Meteor Shower on the 8th & 9th of this month. This year there will be some competition from the full Hunter's Moon. It's supposed to make it harder to observe the meteor shower because of the brightness of the moon at this time. If you live in an area that observes a dark night sky protocol you might get lucky. I live out in the boonies with no competing light pollution within a 50+ mile radius. Good luck!
