Ever looked up at the sky and marveled at how big it is? How mysterious? It’s one of those things we see up there but never really realize just how awesome it is –until it puts on a show for us. The spring was relatively calm in terms of meteor showers, but summer is getting its jump with two nearly simultaneously. So here’s what you need to know.
On Wednesday, July 28, we’re going to be blessed with two separate meteor showers, which will peak at the same time. This means we’re going to have a look to look up in awe at. So whether we wake up early or stay up really late, it will be worth every second.
According to the American Meteor Society (AMS), the Alpha Capracornids meteor shower will be visible from July 3 to August 15. The shower will peak around the pre-dawn hours of July 29, which is the same time, roughly, as the Southern Delta Aquariids, too. The Sothern Delta Aquariids will be visible from July 12 to August 23, 2021, and the Perseids will start-up in mid-July, as well.
