Meteor shower activity in July is minimal until the end of the month where there are three minor meteor showers taking place.
|July Meteor Shower Schedule|
|Shower Name||Start Date||Max Date||End Date|
|Piscis Austrinids||July 15||July 28||August 10|
|South. δ-Aquariids||July 12||July 28||August 19|
|α-Capricornids||July 3||July 30||August 15|
|Perseids||July 17||August 12||August 24|
The South. δ-Aquarids is better viewed from the southern hemisphere and its radiant Aquarius is where it gets the name. I wouldn’t get overly excited about this meteor shower or any of the meteor showers in July, but I do promise you that next month, the Perseids is worth a look and some observers consider it to be the best meteor shower of the year.
