Earth is passing the trail of the comet giacobini-zinner tonight.... they say it might go as high as 1000 per hour... so it can be a show tonight....

Do you know how often we enter this comet route? Surprised

Once in the x years for example?

We pass every year into the area with the "spiderweb" of dust trails from the comet. the comet itself are on a 6,6 year cycle. This year they think we are passing 3 trails. They are unsure how big it will get but. The main show is reported to be between 21-23 norwegian time. so in 20 min hehe.

another fun fact is that this meteors are called Draconidene bc they look like they come from the star picture Draco. they are some of the slowest metors we know off traveling at just 72 000 km/t.

Not really dark sky and it's cloudy, but I saw few of them.
