So exciting! The annual Delta Aquarid meteor shower peaks overnight tonight (July 28), and you can watch the entire event, thanks to a live stream video, here! Check it out.
The sky is going to be filled with magic tonight, July 28, as the annual Delta Aquarid meteor shower hits its peak. It may be considered just an average meteor shower compared to others throughout the year, but according to USA TODAY, you can see up to 20 meteors an hour tonight and tomorrow, July 29.
The best time to look up at the sky is between midnight and just before dawn, but if you don’t want to go outside at that time, you can just watch a live stream video of the cosmic event, HERE.
“This annual meteor shower is best for observers in the Southern Hemisphere and more southerly regions of the Northern Hemisphere, but no matter where you are, you can watch the shower on Slooh,” the Slooh Community Observatory’s representatives wrote in a press release, according to Space.com.
In case you’re unaware, meteor showers happen when Earth crosses the path of a comet. Dust and debris from the remnants of the comet light up the sky when they enter and burn up in our atmosphere. It’s bound to be an event you don’t want to miss!
Plus, this is just a pre-show for an even better meteor shower that’s coming later this summer. “The Perseids, which peak August 11, 12 and 13, and are known as the best summer meteor shower, with 50 or more meteors per hour,” USA TODAY notes. So cool!
