On these dates there will also be the passage of comet 21 / P Giacobini-Zinner, from which the Draconids are derived. "Shooting stars" are, in fact, generated by debris and dust that burn when they come into contact with the Earth's atmosphere.

The celestial sphere moves in our eyes but what really moves is the Earth that rotates from west to east. That is why we see the stars or planets appear in the East and hide in the West.
