The Draconid meteor shower is on its way, Clouds permitting.
The Draconid meteor shower is also known as the Giacobinids. It is one of the two meteor showers to grace our skies every year in October.

It will peak tonight and tomorrow (Friday and Saturday, October 7 and 8) and the best time to see it is right before night fall between 7pm and 9pm.

Astronomers and star-gazers consider it to be one of the most spectacular meteor showers of the year.To get the best view look away from the moon, towards the northern half of the sky.

But will the forecast cloudy skies hide it?
