    This weekend sees what is being billed not as a meteor shower - but a storm:

    Full moon may spoil much of it, but worth a watch, clear skies permitting...

    Lets hope that it does stay clear then.

    Last time I got to see a meteor shower was August last year.

    Hang on thats not good!

    I have just had a peak at the Netweather.TV posts and the latest one says that it will be cloudy and dull with little chance of getting a good view.

    Experts are banking on the idea that the electrostatic risks will be lower with the Draconids, since these meteors travel at less than half the speed of other showers and so shouldn't turn to plasma on impact
