Double Meteor Shower Will Peak Tonight As Two Heavenly Events Overlap

An overlap of double meteor will shower this week and could bring the light up in tonight’s sky with dozens of shooting stars.

With the Southern Delta Aquariids and the Alpha Capricornids reaching the maximum activity by the end of July, the new moon reaching an extra dark sky can make a principal viewing.

Specifically, the alpha capricornids actually peaked few 3 days ago and will continue to generate a visible meteor through the first week of August.

The Aquariids will, however, peak on Monday night till Tuesday. Been active since July 21, the Southern Delta Aquariids will reach a maximum activity today, 30th July 2019.

Nevertheless, these meteors appear to be relatively faint and there might however be as many as 10 to 30 visible appearing in the sky each hour.

Where you live determines how much you will see it from your end.

The Aquariids will, however, peak on Monday night till Tuesday

“For many preparing to observe in the mid-northern latitudes, the radiant lies quite low in the South and hourly rates will lie closer to 10. The radiant is positively placed in the Southern Tropics where it will pass overhead and rates there will be closer to about 30 at maximum.” The American Meteor Society explained.”

On the other hand, the alpha capricornids went into the swing at the beginning of July and reached a peak on July 27th. The Alpha Capricornids are expected to remain at a dwindling rate through to August 11.

Observers in the mid-northern latitudes will, however, have the best chance of seeing one of these fireballs and the alpha capricornids will now become more visible than they appear early July. Earlier, the alpha capricornids had competed with light from the bright full moon.
