The dark sky is also important if you want to see the delta aquariums that coincide with the Perseid meteor shower. This year’s most popular shower, coming from a different light, is brighter than the Delta Aquarius and will reach its peak on the morning of August 11-13.
Although understanding and observing radiation points is not critical to visualizing delta aquariums, Earthsky argues that it is essential to distinguish between delta aquariums and percussion in August.
When delta aquariums radiate near the constellation Aquarius, persids fly from the constellation Perseus in the northeastern part of the sky. So if you are in the northern hemisphere, the meteorites from the northeast are Perseid, while the meteorites from the south are delta aquariums, Earthsky suggests.
