Two meteor showers to peak tonight



If the weather works together and you have enough coffee, a double meteor shower may be noticeable on Tuesday night!

There are currently three active meteor showers: Southern Delta Aquariums, Alpha Capricorns and Perseids. The two expected peaks today, July 28, are the aquariums of the Southern Delta and Alpha Capricorns.

Neither the South Delta nor the Alpha Capricorns are considered particularly stellar meteor showers, but both can produce about 15 to 20 meteors per hour in low-light areas.

Until the clouds clear tonight, the peak viewing time will be the naked eye from 2 to 4 am. The best place to watch meteors will be far from big cities or in the mountains, or further east in the plains away from light.

The Alpha Capricornids shower, which is weaker of the two, often produces bright fireballs during the period of its activity.
