Skywatcher Alert: Meteor Shower Peaks This Week

The South Delta Aquarids top the bill of several meteor showers converging in the night sky this week, giving night owls good reason to stay up after the moon sets to catch an eyeful of shooting stars.

“They’re the strongest of several low-key showers, the combined activity of which makes the last week of July a productive time,” said Neil Bone, director of the British Astronomical Association’s meteor section.
