Meteor shower tonight: 'Exciting fireballs' to light up the night on Delta Aquariids peak

Keep your eyes peeled for the Delta Aquariids on the southeast skies from about 11pm.

The radiant or point of entry will climb higher throughout the night.

Just keep in mind your views may be somewhat spoiled by the Waning Gibbous Moon, which is still very bright.

Ms Patel said: “The Delta Aquariids will be a tricky shower to observe so if you’re determined to spend a few good hours meteor spotting, a summer deck chair can make the viewing experience a lot more comfortable.

“And a silver lining – radiating from the neighbouring constellation of Capricornus, the Alpha Capricornus meteor shower will also be peaking on the same night.

“Although very few meteors are expected from it, some exciting fireballs could bring some glamour to the show.”
