The peak of the Daytime Arietids meteor shower, in constellation Aries, is at 12:00 UT, 7th June, 2013.

ZHR=54.0  

Velocity=37.4km/s 

The stream is active from the 22nd May to the 2nd July.

Though no one is sure where the Arietids dust comes from, some suspect it's debris from the sungrazing asteroid (1566) Icarus. Most Arietid meteors are invisible because the Sun is up when the shower is most intense.
