See Two Summer Meteor Showers Light Up the Night: Tips for Stargazing

The last weekend of July promises a celestial treat for stargazers as two of the best summer meteor showers, Southern delta Aquariid and Perseid, light up the night sky.

The Southern delta Aquariid meteor shower is an annual event that occurs between July 12 and August 23 each year.

The Perseid meteor shower, on the other hand, is one of the best astronomical events of the year and is known for producing up to 100 meteors per hour during its peak.

To see the meteor showers, you'll need to find a dark location away from city lights. Look for a spot with an unobstructed view of the sky, such as a park or field.

The Southern delta Aquariid meteor shower will be at its peak on the nights of July 29 and 30, with stargazers being able to spot a dozen or more meteors per hour.

The Perseid meteor shower will be building towards its own peak in August, with the best viewing time being on the night of August 12-13.

To get the most out of your stargazing experience, get away from city light pollution. Find a spot with a clear view of the sky and minimal light pollution.

Give your eyes at least 20 minutes to adjust to the darkness. Avoid looking at your phone or other light sources during this time.

Bring warm clothes and blankets to keep you comfortable during your stargazing session. Bring some snacks and drinks to keep you energized.

You don't need any special equipment to observe meteor showers. Find a comfortable spot to lie down and look up at the sky.
