Meteor Showers

If you pay attention to such things, there are a couple Meteor showers that can be seen starting on Sunday. The Southern Delta Aquarids and Alpha Capricornids will peak simultaneously centered around the night of Sunday, July 30, into the early morning of Monday, July 3.

from USA Today:

Though few in number, the Alpha Capricornids frequently produce slow, bright yellow, fireball-class meteors that can be quite spectacular. They can be especially stunning for northern observers because of their long trails, owing to their low radiant elevation. The American Meteor Society agrees with this, saying that “what is notable about this shower is the number of bright fireballs produced during its activity period.”

The Southern Delta Aquarids are best seen from the southern tropics, the AMS said. Here in the U.S., “these are usually faint meteors that lack both persistent trains and fireballs.”

For stargazing, you must consider a couple things. FIRST: weather. Is it going to cloudy where you are? Its a bummer when you plan a star night and then its cloudy or raining. Al that waiting for a specific event. SECOND: Consider the effect of Light pollution. Are you in a rural area or closer to cities. Nighttime light may help us see the world around us. They obscure the night sky.
