A DOUBLE METEOR SHOWER: Tonight, July 28-29, Earth is passing through streams of debris from two comets: 96P/Machholz and 169P/NEAT. Naturally, this is causing two meteor showers: the Southern Delta Aquarids and the alpha Capricornids. Added together, they produce 20 to 30 meteors per hour. The best time to look is during the dark hours between midnight and sunrise (local time). Jupiter and Saturn While you're looking for shooting stars let your gaze go to the Solar System Heavyweights, Jupiter and Saturn. Jupiter and Saturn are the two most obvious objects in the night sky. Perseids Meteor Shower And if you look to the Northeast you might be able to see the Perseids meteor shower. It peaks in August, but there is always a good chance to see some early action in late July. Stay Tuned!
