A meteor shower is expected to sweep across the sky tonight.

Experts say the Draconid meteor shower is great to see because it’s best seen just after sunset.

Most meteor showers happen before dawn.

Astronomers suggest lying on a blanket or reclining chair to get a full-sky view.

The Draconid shower is the result of tiny bits of dust and ice debris left behind by a comet that circles the sun every six-and-a-half years.
