Draconid meteor shower on October 8th 2011 – up to 750 meteors per hour or more pose risk to satellites
On October 8th Earth is going to plow through a stream of dust from Comet 21P/Giacobini-Zinner, and the result could be an outburst of Draconid meteors.

“We’re predicting as many as 750 meteors per hour,” says William Cooke of the Meteoroid Environment Office at NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Ala. “The timing of the shower favors observers in the Middle East, north Africa and parts of Europe.....

SO we here in North America won't be able to see when they are about to hit us lol.. I wish they would be visible over here. Watching meteor showers is a pretty cool site.

Re: Draconid meteor shower on October 8th 2011 – up to 750 meteors per hour or more pose risk to satellites
The peak is set to occur at 2000UT (2100 BST), and is ideally placed for observers in the UK. Activity is expected to increase from 1600UT (1700 BST) but at that stage the sky will still be bright in the UK.

If you’re keen to witness this (possibly) amazing event here are some top tips:



1
Head out early. Start your meteorwatch once the sky gets dark enough. For most people in the UK this will be from 1900 – 1930 BST (anyone living in the north of Scotland will have to wait a bit longer). Although the peak of the storm is estimated to occur around 2100 BST there will be plenty to see in the hours leading up to the peak.

2

Know where to look. The Draconids all appear to originate from the constellation Draco, which will be high in the NW sky, just above and to the left of the north star, Polaris. However the meteors will streak across the entire sky so don’t just look NW.

3
Know what to look for. Meteors appear as bright streaks of light moving rapidly across the sky. They last for a fraction of a second, but the Draconids are unusually slow meteors. Still, blink and you might miss one.

4

Keep the Moon to your back. The full Moon will drown out the light from all but the brightest Draconids, and if you look at the Moon it will spoil your night vision, so keep it behind you, ideally blocked out by a building or tree.

5

You just need your eyes. Binoculars and telescopes, while ideal for observing faint nebulae and planets, are no good for meteorwatching. You want to take in as much of the sky as you can, and have as wide a field of view as possible, so just use your eyes.

Well you can still catch some of them at non-peak times, just won't be as many to see.

Man, I've been lookin forward to this for a while. Hope Europe doesn't steal all the nice meteors before the sun goes down here in the US :) It'll be 3-4 hours after peak time, so we get sloppy seconds

Ok, so on the 29th September (Rosh Hashana) we saw the Virgin (virgo constellation) pregnant with the moon under her feet, plus the Comet Elenin (Bethlehem Star)also in Virgo was annuncing Jesus (Venus=morning star) birth.
Now on the 8th of october (Yom Kippur)we will see a meteor shower coming from Draco constellation, so it will look like the dragon is throwing the stars to the earth.

Revelation 12
A great sign appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet and a crown of twelve stars on her head. 2 She was pregnant and cried out in pain as she was about to give birth. 3 Then another sign appeared in heaven: an enormous red dragon with seven heads and ten horns and seven crowns on its heads. 4 Its tail swept a third of the stars out of the sky and flung them to the earth

I really want to see some action in the sky. I saw the coolest meteor once, maybe about a year ago, and it was the most amazing thing I have ever witnessed. It was a large glowing green orb that caught fire and burnt up right in front of my eyes across the sky behind my house.

I am kind of sad this shower peaks during the day where I am. Hoping to see at least something Saturday night.
