Draconids and Orionids – two meteor showers this month

There are two meteor showers this month, and the first is the Draconids on Tuesday, followed by the Orionids peaking on the 21st but with a very wide window either side. The Draconids are rarely spectacular or plentiful, but the Orionids offer more of a show, being the remnants of the tail of Halley’s comet. Like the Draconids, the Orionids can be seen anywhere in the sky even though they technically radiate from the constellation Orion. For a full list of the other meteor showers this year, see HERE.
