There’s a lot to watch for in the heavens tonight: the Draconid meteor shower, a space station flyover and a Mars closeup.
The meteor shower is named for Draco the dragon constellation because the meteors appear to travel from a point near the dragon’s head, according to NASA’s Solar System Exploration Research Virtual Institute.
The Draconid meteor shower will be active starting tonight through Oct. 10, with the best viewing likely tonight.
Lastly, Mars the red planet will be at its closest point to Earth tonight, at 38.6 million miles away, NASA said.
