Late July and early August, 2014, the Delta Aquarids Like the Eta Aquarids in May, the Delta Aquarid meteor shower in July favors the Southern Hemisphere and tropical latitudes in the Northern Hemisphere. The meteors appear to radiate from near the star Skat or Delta in the constellation Aquarius the Water Bearer. The maximum hourly rate can reach 15-20 meteors in a dark sky. The nominal peak is around July 29-30, but, unlike many meteor showers, the Delta Aquarids lack a very definite peak. Instead, these medium-speed meteors ramble along fairly steadily throughout late July and early August. An hour or two before dawn usually presents the most favorable view of the Delta Aquarids. Fortunately, in late July, 2014, the rather faint Delta Aquarid meteors will not have to contend with moonlight, as the waxing crescent moon will set at early evening. Try watching in late July and early August, when the Perseid meteor shower is building to a peak. The new moon in late July 2014 makes this year a favorable one for watching the Delta Aquarids.
