According to AccuWeather, back-to-back meteor showers are peaked on Tuesday night and are expected to continue on Wednesday. However distinctive shows have taken place through the years. The sky could be filled with hundreds of meteors. This won't be one you have to stay up past midnight to see. While this shower is generally less active than most, producing about 2 to 10 meteors per hour, it still provides a attractive sight for stargazers across the state.
The moon will be in the sky during this part of the night, so stargazers should look for meteors in the sky away from the bright moon.
There are two meteor showers expected to peak over the next two days.
"This is a good shower for younger stargazers, especially since the shower peaks on a school night", Samuhel noted.
There will not be as much activity as a year ago - but the Draconids will still likely throw off a few meteors per hour.
"Whatever happens, it will be of high interest to have a close monitoring of Draconid meteor shower", wrote IMO meteor observer Karl Antier earlier this month. Both will be active all week, but the specified dates are when they are at their peak. The Orionids will peak later this month, followed by the Northern Taurids and Leonids in November. The South Taurid meteors are moving about 17 miles per second, slower than others that occur during different meteor showers. Unfortunately, there aren't any predicted meteor storms happening this year.
