Two meteor showers converge Monday night for a sparkling show
0 Comments

Two meteor showers converge overnight Monday, increasing one’s chances of making a wish – especially given the expected lack of moonlight.

All meteor showers are best viewed in the darkest hours before dawn, around 2 or 3 a.m., though any time after midnight will do, notes Accuweather.com. Though they appear to emanate from a particular point, they streak all over the sky.

The Delta Aquariids are best seen from the Southern Hemisphere, while the normally faint Alpha Capricornids can be seen from anywhere, as long as skies are dark enough to not obscure these usually faint meteors.
