Meteorite Hitting “Draco”

The Draconoid meteorite shower is supposed to have its maximum by saturday night with an estimated 600 drops per hour; probably only the half or third will be seen due to the enlighten sky by the moon. They are called Draconoids because it seems they are coming out of the constellation of “Draco”. Four days before that, “Draco”  himself has been hit   by a huge meteorite! The weather forecast for saturday says all cloudy skies north of the alps, but south of it like at the Lago di Garda in Italy and further south the spectacle will be visible…..! Enjoy!

“I have never been able to grasp the meaning of time. I don’t believe it exists. I’ve felt this again and again, when alone and out in nature. On such occasions, time does not exist. Nor does the future exist.”  (Thor Heyerdahl, Norwegian Explorer, 1914-2002)
