2016 Draconid Meteor Shower from The Constellation of Draco the Dragon. The Coming Fulfillment of Revelation 12

Revelation 12 New King James Version (NKJV) 3 And another sign appeared in heaven: behold, a great, fiery red dragon having seven heads and ten horns, and seven diadems on his heads. 4 His tail drew a third of the stars of heaven and threw them to the earth. ... Satan Thrown Out of Heaven 7 And war broke out in heaven: Michael and his angels fought with the dragon; and the dragon and his angels fought, 8 but they did not prevail, nor was a place found for them[a] in heaven any longer. 9 So the great dragon was cast out, that serpent of old, called the Devil and Satan, who deceives the whole world; he was cast to the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.

Satan Thrown Out of Heaven
7 And war broke out in heaven: Michael and his angels fought with the dragon; and the dragon and his angels fought, 8 but they did not prevail, nor was a place found for them[a] in heaven any longer. 9 So the great dragon was cast out, that serpent of old, called the Devil and Satan, who deceives the whole world; he was cast to the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.

  • OK, people, it’s that time of the year again when we aim our telescope at Draco the Dragon. The BIG EVENT will not be this year. It will be in Sep/Oct 2017, for the fulfillment of Revelation 12. Next year the Great Meteor Shower from the tail of Draco the Dragon will happen. It is, of course, in fulfillment of Rev. 12:4: “His tail drew a third of the stars of heaven and threw them to the earth.”. This is the coming of the fallen angels cast down to earth.
  • 2016 Draconid Meteor Shower from The Constellation of Draco the Dragon 
    by http://www.timeanddate.com/
    The 2016 Draconid meteor shower is expected to reach its peak on October 8. A first Quarter Moon may make it harder for observers to see many shooting stars.

    The best time to see the shower is right before nightfall.

    Two meteor showers in October
    The Draconid meteor shower, also sometimes known as the Giacobinids, is one of the two meteor showers to annually grace the skies in October. The Draconids owe their name to the constellation Draco the Dragon, and are created when the Earth passes through the dust debris left by comet 21 P/ Giacobini-Zinner. The comet takes about 6.6 years to make a single revolution around the Sun.

    Although the Draconids have been responsible for some of the most spectacular meteor showers in recorded history, most recently in 2011, most astronomers and sky gazers consider these to be one of the least interesting meteor showers in during the year.

    The Orionids are the second meteor shower in October. It usually peaks around October 21.

    Location in the Sky
    The Draconids meteor shower is not visible at this time of year. The best date is around 8 Oct 2016, table below is for that date:

    Where can I see the Draconids From?
    Viewers in Northern America, Europe and Asia are the best situated to enjoy the Draconids. Those closer to the Equator in the Southern Hemisphere can also sometimes see few meteors from the Draconids. While it is not necessary to look in a particular direction to enjoy a meteor shower – just lie down on the ground and look directly above and you are bound to see some meteors – astronomers suggest locating the Draco the Dragon’s two brightest stars, Eltanin and Rastaban. The meteor shower seems to emerge from the dragon’s head.

  • Draconid meteors after sunset October 7, 2016
    by , http://earthsky.org/  
    October 7, 2016 – the constellation Draco the Dragon will be spitting out meteors, also known as shooting stars. The Draconid shower is predicted to produce the greatest number of meteors on the evening of October 7. The next night, October 8, might feature some meteors, too. This shower favors the Northern Hemisphere. But even at northerly latitudes, we must warn you that the Draconids are often a modest shower, perhaps offering a handful of slow-moving meteors per hour.

    Most meteor showers are often best after midnight, but this shower is different. Watch for the Draconid meteors first thing at nightfall. Fortunately, the waxing crescent moon low in the southwest sky at nightfall shouldn’t interfere too greatly with this year’s Draconid meteor display. This shower is best viewed in the evening hours.

  • Everything you need to know: Draconid meteor shower
    by  and in The maximum number of Draconid meteors are expected to fall on the evening of October 7.

    October’s Draconid meteor shower – sometimes called the Giacobinids – radiates from the fiery mouth of the northern constellation Draco the Dragon. Because the radiant is located so far north on the sky’s dome, this shower favors temperate and far-northern latitudes, such as the U.S., Canada, Europe and northern Asia. In 2016, the peak dates will probably be on the evenings of October 7, starting at nightfall. There’s a rather wide waxing crescent moon to obscure this year’s shower. Yet this shower is oftentimes a sleeper, even in a dark sky completely free of moonlight. But watch out if the Dragon awakes, which is always a possibility! Follow the links below to learn more about the Draconid meteor shower.

    How many Draconid meteors will I see? Usually, this meteor shower offers no more than a handful of languid meteors per hour, even at its peak. Plus, in 2016, the waxing crescent moon this year will somewhat intrude on this year’s show. Watch out, though, if the Dragon awakes! This shower has been known to rain down hundreds or even thousands of meteors in an hour. And in fact it’s the history of this shower that makes it so interesting. See the history section, below.
