If you and your family love stargazing, you won’t want to miss the Draconid meteor shower.

And with the annual event set to peak this week, there’s no better time to look up to the skies.

The shower is named after the constellation Draco, which means Dragon, and is made up from the debris left by the comet 21P/Giacobini-Zinner.

It is the first of two annual meteor showers occurring in October, with the second being the Orionids, which will be visible later in the month.

However, for your best chance to get a look, the peak days are Wednesday 7 and Thursday 8.

American Meteor Society member Robert Lunsford said that the shower is often faint, so is best to view from rural areas with clear skies.
