Don’t Miss Two Meteor Showers That Will be Illuminating The Night Sky Soon

Stargazing is a relaxing and interesting activity, especially if you’re enjoying it along with the right person. The Universe never runs out of outstanding celestial shows, and another two events are on their way. Two meteor showers will see their peak next week, according to the American Meteor Society. If you’re lucky enough and available for the entire cosmic show, you’ll even spot several fireballs.

The Southern Delta-Aquariids represent one of the meteor showers, and it will peak its activity early Monday morning. NASA details for us that this meteor shower will produce up to 25 meteors per hour.

Don’t miss the Alpha Capricornids either

The American Meteor Society says that this second meteor shower will also peak next week, from Tuesday night until Wednesday morning. However, this second round of meteors won’t be as impressive as the first one. It will produce only about 5 meteors per hour, but the shower is still worth attending to. The American Meteor Society assures us that the Alpha Capricornids shower produces meteors that are particularly visible and bright.

The Society also says that the shower is “not very strong and rarely produces in excess of five shower members per hour, what is notable about this shower is the number of bright fireballs produced during its activity period,”

To admire a meteor shower, “find an open sky away from artificial lights, lie down on a reclining lawn chair and look upward,” says EarthSky.org.

Our recommendation is to cancel some plans for the next week. The celestial show is waiting for you, and you don’t even need tickets for it. Go ahead and make a wish upon the so-called “falling stars”, and hopefully, some entity living out there somewhere will grant your desires. But regardless if you’re religious, superstitious or none of those, meteor showers are always a wonderful sight.
