Draconid Meteor Watch and another CME

I'm into space and the truth is out there. We can talk about it here. Hubble, shuttle stuff, UFO's, stellar stuff.

Draconid Meteor Watch and another CME

Space Weather News for Oct. 7, 2012
http://spaceweather.com

DRACONID METEOR WATCH: Earth is about to pass through a stream of debris from comet 21P/Giacobini-Zinner, source of the annual Draconid meteor shower. Last year, Europeans witnessed a faint but furious outburst of 600 meteors per hour when the shower peaked. No such display is expected this year, but the Draconids are notoriously unpredictable. Northern-hemisphere sky watchers should be alert for slow-moving meteors emerging from the head of the constellation Draco the Dragon (not far from the North Star) on Sunday night, Oct 7th, through Monday morning Oct. 8th. Check http://spaceweather.com for more information and updates.

INCOMING CME: A coronal mass ejection (CME) is heading for Earth. The incoming cloud is expected to deliver a glancing blow to our planet's magnetosphere on October 8th, possibly sparking auroras at high latitudes. Would you like a phone call when the CME arrives? Geomagnetic storm alerts are available from http://spaceweathertext.com (text) and http://spaceweatherphone.com (voice).

Don't just watch meteors, wear them. Authentic meteorite jewelry is available in the Space Weather Store: http://www.shopspaceweather.com
