Southern Delta Aquariids  Peak night  Jul 29-30
Active from July 12th to August 23rd
The Delta Aquariids are another strong shower best seen from the southern tropics. North of the equator the radiant is located lower in the southern sky and therefore rates are less than seen from further south. These meteors produce good rates for a week centered on the night of maximum. These are usually faint meteors that lack both persistent trains and fireballs.
Radiant: 22:40 -16.4° – ZHR: 16 – Velocity: 26 miles/sec (medium – 41km/sec) – Parent Object: 96P/Machholz?
