The Draconids, they seem to appear out of the constellation of Draco, on October 8th and 9th, were just a shadow of their self as it could easily have been ten times more impressive.

Angkor was one of the world's largest cities back in the 13th century AD. There was a massive 300 feet deep sand dune in front of the cave - but it has now been quarried away.
At October 2018, we hae news of an upcoming comet (Comet Wirtanen) which may provide us with a dramatic show in December. The cave has ten Palaeolithic burials and seven clusters of bones.
