"It will come from the direction of the constellation of Draco the dragon and the Draconids are caused by Earth's atmosphere coming into contact with debris rock and dust from a passing comet. The peak time to see the shooting stars is tomorrow around 9 p.m. Can we stay up late and watch? Please Great Uncle Gordon!" pleaded Digby.
"I was named after a comet," said Dandy as he hurried towards Pauly's Library.

A Milky Way, a Galaxy, a Mars bar and a packet of Starburst!
