This weekend the Draconids Meteor Shower will be at its peak! "The radiant point for the Draconid meteor shower almost coincides with the head of the constellation Draco the Dragon in the northern sky. That's why the Draconids are best viewed from the Northern Hemisphere. The Draconid shower is a real oddity, in that the radiant point stands highest in the sky as darkness falls. That means that, unlike many meteor showers, more Draconids are likely to fly in the evening hours than in the morning hours after midnight. This shower is usually a sleeper, producing only a handful of languid meteors per hour in most years. But watch out if the Dragon awakes! In rare instances, fiery Draco has been known to spew forth many hundreds of meteors in a single hour. In 2017, watch the Draconid meteors at nightfall and early evening On October 7 and 8, before the bright waning gibbous moon rises into the sky at early-to-mid evening.-Earthsky website
This will be a great weekend to stroll around the campground and view the fall color while identifying more than 40 different types of trees and shrubs that have been planted over the last two decades! Bring your "tree questions" to ask ...we have tried almost everything related to trees! We will then have a "tree related" craft and fall themed treats (think spiced apples and cinnamon!) in the afternoon. Fun for all ages!
The Orionid meteor shower is set to peak the night of Oct. 21-22, however, the nearly full moon will lead to subpar views for this night sky display. The meteors that streak across the sky are some of the fastest among meteor showers, because the Earth is hitting a stream of particles almost head on. The Orionids are named after the direction from which they appear to radiate, which is near the constellation Orion (The Hunter). In October, Orion is best visible around 2 am. The best viewing will be around that time on Oct. 21 and Oct. 22. If you miss the peak, the show is also visible between Oct. 15 and 29, as long as the moon isn't washing the meteors out.
