Most of the time, you can see a sky full of stars, a few shooting stars, and occasionally a planet or two. Many space enthusiasts love coming to Montana to see space in its glory because of the vast open spaces and the low light pollution.

There is one particular event happening this weekend that will be one you don't want to miss.

According to Earth Sky, the Dranonid Meteor Shower will start the night of October 8th and go well into the morning of October 9th. You will see meteors running through the night sky for hours in packs of tens or more.

The best part is this weekend will be perfect for meteor watching.

It's supposed to be clear skies all weekend and will be perfect to watch the night sky. Usually, Montana misses out on these opportunities with cloud coverage, but it will be different this weekend.

This will be the first Draconid Meteor Shower since 2011 and is a ca n't-miss event for stargazers.

If you want to see the meteor shower in all its glory, you should try to find a spot outside Bozeman to watch. Why? The light pollution in Bozeman could affect your views, and you don't want to miss a thing.
