In the past few days several people have mentioned they’ve been seeing more meteors than usual. Late July through mid-August is always one of the best times of years to spot a meteor without even trying. Several different showers overlap from mid-July through mid-August, the reason for the uptick. Three meteor showers are currently active: the Delta Aquarids (July 21 – Aug. 23), Alpha Capricornids (July 11 – Aug. 10) and the Perseids (July 13 – Aug. 26).
