This year’s Delta Aquarid meteor shower is building toward its peak on the 29th/30th July.
The Southern Delta Aquarids are a meteor shower visible from mid July to mid August each year with peak activity on or around 29th July. The shower originated from the breakup of what are now the Marsden and Kracht Sungrazing comets. Their name is due to the shower radiant being located near the star Delta Aquarius.
The Delta Aquarids are best viewed in the pre-dawn hours, away from the glow of street-lights. The radiant is above the southern horizon for us Northern Hemisphere viewers and so the meteors tend to fan out in all compass points – east, north and west.
