Aquariid Meteor shower, Monday July 28 - Tuesday July 29

In the late evening of Monday 28 July to the early morning of Tuesday 29 July, the Aquariid meteor shower may be seen. Places with clear, dark skies should see a meteor every 3-5 minutes or so. While not a storm, it is still enough to enjoy.

At 10 pm Monday evening, face east, and look 4 hand spans and two finger widths above the horizon. One finger width right is the 4th magnitude star delta d Aquarii. The radiant is just above this star, see the map for more detail. This meteor shower should be visible from 10.00pm until dawn, with better meteor rates after midnight.
