Space Weather news for July 26, 2003

METEOR WATCH: Sky watchers who have been going outside between midnight
and dawn to see Mars have lately been seeing something else, too:
shooting
stars. Mars is in the constellation Aquarius, and so is the radiant of
the
delta Aquarid meteor shower, which peaks this year on July 28th and
29th.
This is not a major shower. It produces just 10 to 20 meteors each hour.
But if you stand outside for 10 minutes or so, you're likely to spot a
few
delta Aquarids--a lovely bonus for Mars watchers.
