October 7, 2017 – the fiery mouth of the constellation Draco the Dragon will be spitting out meteors, also known as shooting stars. The Draconid shower is predicted to produce the greatest number of meteors on the evening of October 7 or 8. This shower favors the Northern Hemisphere. But even at northerly latitudes, we must warn you that the Draconids are often a very modest shower, perhaps offering a handful of slow-moving meteors per hour.

Most meteor showers are better after midnight, but this shower is different. This shower is best viewed in the evening hours. Watch for the Draconid meteors first thing at nightfall – or before the bright waning gibbous moon rises into your sky.
