It’s Raining Stars!

We are in four Meteor Showers right now, with three peaking all at once this week.  The Piscis Austrinids Meteor Shower kicks things off peaking today.  It will continue to be active til August 10th.  We have the Delta Aquariids Meteor Shower which is active until August 24th.  It peaks July 30th.  The Delta Aquariids Meteor Shower is from the debris of the comet Machholz.  With this one we will see two distinct streams of celestial debris, as they burn up in Earth’s atmosphere.  We are in the Alpha Capricornids Meteor Shower now too.  They are active until August 15th.  They peak July 30th.  The Alpha Capricornids Meteor Shower is from debris from Comet NEAT.  Expect exciting fireballs with both the Delta Aquariids Meteor Shower and the Alpha Capricornids Meteor Shower.  We are in the Perseids Meteor Shower until August 23rd.  The Perseids will peak August 12th- August 13th.  The Perseids Meteor Shower is caused by the Earth slamming into debris from the comet Swift-Tuttle.  Expect extra sparkles in the sky with this one.
