Draconids and Comet 21P/Giacobini-Zinner

Recommended Posts

I see that it's the peak of the Draconids meteor shower on 8/9th October. 

I was wondering if, as the parent of the Draconids is Comet 21P/Giacobini-Zinner and that comet it currently nearby and just passed perihelion, we might expect a more vigorous shower this year?

Not seen any mention of it, so I guess not?
