Over the next few days Earth will be passing through what is known as a cloud of cometary dust, allowing us to view the spectacular Draconid meteor shower.

The shower is taking place between October 7th-11th but will be most visible late Friday evening into the early Saturday hours.

Named after the constellation of Draco the dragon, the Draconids occur every year and are one of the two meteor showers to light up the skies in October.

However, bad weather could threaten viewers chances as clear skies are needed to take in the sight.

Can I see the Draconid meteor shower in Denbighshire?

Those in Denbighshire may be luck tonight. The Met Office is predicting partially clear skies from 7pm through to 1am. At 10pm the skies seem to clear completely for an hour, so that window may give you your sneak peak at the meteor shower.

It is also forecasted to remain dry this evening, so stargazers don’t need to worry about packing umbrellas.

Where should I go to see the meteor shower?

Met Office spokesman Grahame Madge told Press Association to have your best chance of catching the meteor shower you must go somewhere very dark with no light pollution and an unobstructed horizon.

Sunset tonight in Denbighshire is 18:35.

There is no advantage to using binoculars or a telescope, he states.
