"The Draconids meteor shower kicks off the fall meteor shower season", Dave Samuhel, AccuWeather astronomy blogger and meteorologist, said in a statement.

The first, the Draconid meteor shower, will reach its climax Tuesday evening into Wednesday morning, according to AccuWeather.

The Milky Manner was seen, in addition to a couple of capturing stars, through the begin of the Perseid meteor bathe on August 10, 2018, close to Florissant. During the shower's peak, the Draconids are expected to showcase about 10 meteors per hour.

During one particular outburst in 2018, European observers counted more than 140 meteors per hour. Last year, observers in Europe reported seeing almost 150 meteors an hour, according to the IMO.

The Draconids meteor shower could be seen tonight and tomorrow night. When the bits of ice and dust left behind by the comet collide with Earth's atmosphere, they burn up, creating bright streaks across the night sky.

While the Bill has been withdrawn, the protests have morphed into an anti-government movement calling for more democracy. The Hong Kong democracy protests have been ongoing for more than 17 weeks and show no signs of abating.

AccuWeather says that during peak shower time, you can spot the meteors in any part of the sky, rather than just focusing on one area.

Even at northerly latitudes, the Draconids are typically a very modest shower, providing only a handful of gradual-moving meteors per hour. Cooke also cautioned that viewers should be prepared to look for a while before they see meteors.

Still, weather permitting, you may still see something.

If you want to catch a view of the Southern Taurids, also note visibility conditions: The moon will be 87 percent full during this time, so you'll want to direct your gaze away from the illuminated lunar surface. Get out of the city, since the more light pollution the more obstructed the view. The shooting stars will appear to emanate from the Draco constellation, located above the Big Dipper and Polaris.

The Orionid meteor shower peaks later this month, October 21st into the 22nd, and usually brings around 20 meteors per hour.
