DRACONID METEOR SHOWER: Today, Earth is passing through a stream of debris from comet 21P/Giacobini-Zinner, source of the annual Draconid meteor shower. Forecasters expect about 10 slow-moving meteors per hour to appear near the north celestial pole. Tune into Space Weather Radio to hear live Draconid radar echoes. [sky map]
