According to Forbes two meteor showers will lighten the sky on Monday evening, as a barely visible moon offers ideal visibility.

The first shower, Delta Aquarids, is best seen looking south towards the constellation Aquarius. At peak, the chill should produce about 20 meteors an hour, though most of them will be quite weak.

The alpha ibexes are even less productive showers at just about five meteors an hour, but bright fireballs are more likely to occur in this shower, according to the American Meteor Society. It is also considered looking south towards the constellation Capricorn.

Meteors from these showers can appear everywhere in the sky, not just in the constellation they are named after.

Next month, exactly the same Forbes the productive summer rainfall of the Perseids will reach its peak of about 60 meteors per hour on the night of 12 August. However, it may be advisable to look for Perseiden meteors before August 7, as the moon is very bright on August 12 and weaker meteors are difficult to see.

For the best view of the meteor showers, find a dark place nearby from light sources and light pollution between midnight and 4am It's best not to look at your phone for 20 minutes before heading to meteors seek as the white light can make it hard for your eyes to adapt to the night sky to see that meteors.
