Every year in early June, Earth passes through the densest part of an interplanetary meteoroid stream. Most are invisible, though, because the Sun is above the horizon while the shower is most intense. These daylight meteors are called the Arietids. This is the strongest daylight meteor shower of the year. The shower extends from May 22 to July 2. Arietid meteoroids hit Earth's atmosphere with a velocity of 39 km/s (87,000 mph). Maximum activity of 60 meteors/hr is expected at 0600 UT on June 7, 2020. Arietids are visible for observers in both of Earth's hemispheres, north and south. Pre-dawn Arietids tend to be "Earthgrazers" --meteors that skim horizontally through the upper atmosphere from radiants near the horizon. Spectacular Earthgrazers are usually slow and bright, streaking far across the sky--worth waking up for! They stream from a radiant point in the constellation Aries, which lies just 30 degrees from the Sun in June. If you want to see a few Arietids, try looking just before sunrise. Stay tuned!
