The Arietid meteor shower streams from a point only 30 degrees from the sun, peaks on the 8th June. The best time to look is just before dawn.
This is the strongest daylight meteor shower of the year. The duration extends from May 22 to July 2. The hourly rate is 54 at maximum.
This meteor shower was discovered during 1947, by the Jodrell Bank observatory (England).
