Stargazing

The October Draconids meteor shower will be at its maximum this weekend, so take a look at the sky.
Unfortunately, for those of you in North America, the peak will be during daytime, but in Europe, it will be between 16h-22h Universal Time on Saturday night and several meteors per minute are possible (forecasts differ, though). Grab a deck chair or a blanket, some warm clothes and get as far away from lights as possible. Outside the city would be best, although I've been watching meteors in a public park for years now, with trees shielding me from the streetlights.
Here's a maps that will help with spotting the meteors.
