2018 Delta Aquariids…
Yes, it’s that time once again… Time for A Summer meteor shower, the Delta Aquariids.
Right now the shower is in progress, and the Delta Aquariids run almost the full month of July and most of August, when they overlap with the famous Perseid meteor shower.
Radiating from the constellation Aquarius, the shower will hang around for a long-time and peaks around July 27-28, 2018.
The moon is in a waxing crescent phase and is gone from the sky after midnight. Should be some interesting viewing until late July around the peak, when the full moon returns and drowns you out.
The number of meteors for this shower will not significantly increase around the peak, but continues passed the full moon phase. You’ll have clear viewing until the Perseids.
Around that time, the meteors will be coming from two directions. It should interesting.
