Draconid Meteor Shower Peak (Draconids)
An event every year that begins at 12:00 AM on day 8 of October, repeating indefinitely
The 1933 and 1946 Draconids had Zenithal Hourly Rates of thousands of meteors visible per hour, among the most impressive meteor storms of the 20th century. Rare outbursts in activity can occur when the Earth travels through a denser part of the cometary debris stream; for example, in 1998, rates suddenly spiked and spiked again (less spectacularly) in 2005.
