Meteor to light up sky

Over the next few weeks we will have the opportunity to view two meteor showers. The Delta Aquarids happen in July and the Perseids in August.
The Delta Aquarids are usually a steadily rambling meteor shower without a very definite peak from July 18 to Aug. 18. During the nights of July 28th and 29th however, the waxing gibbous moon will set after midnight leaving the hours between moonset and dawn optimal for viewing the meteor shower.
