An annual meteor shower reaches its climax tonight in a stunning night sky screen displaying up to 20 flames per hour. Here you will find everything you need to know to see the spectacular sky show.
The meteor shower of the Delta Aquariids is a spectacular display of essentially space dust and wreckage of a comet (or comet) in our orbit that flew near the Sun.
The comet ejects particles that then enter our atmosphere – about 60 miles above the earth – and race across the sky at a speed of 150,000 km / h. Sometimes they evaporate into falling stars, leaving a trail of blazing light.  Also on rt.com

This particular group of meteors is visible every year from mid-July to mid-August. However, the show will reach its peak on July 28th and 29th with up to 20 meteors per hour. For all time zones, the best time to look is after midnight, but before sunrise.
Those in the southern hemisphere have the best view in the house, though the meteors are still visible in northern lands when viewed outside the city lights, the moon, clouds or heavy pollution.
