Southern Iota Aquarids Meteor Shower

The Southern Iota Aquarids meteor shower peaks on August 5 with a ZHR of two. With these low rates one would be lucky to see one shower member per hour. The radiant is currently located in south-western Aquarius, five degrees west of the third magnitude star Delta Aquarii. At 34 km/sec the meteors have average velocities.
