Streaming | Two Meteor Showers, One Fabulous Night | Delta Aquariids 2020 | Alpha Capricornids 2020

July 28 @ 9:00 pm - 10:00 pm EDT

Every year in late July, the Earth passes through the debris left by two comets, one that creates the Delta Aquariid meteor shower and one that creates the Alpha Capricornid meteor shower. This year, both meteor showers peak on the same night. Join Lowell Observatory at 9pm AZ/PT on Tuesday, July 28, 2020, for a live stream of these two meteor showers, hosted by astronomer Dr. Nick Moskovitz and research assistant Megan Gialluca. We’ll use the All-Sky Camera at the Lowell Discovery Telescope to hunt for meteors together. After that, you’ll be ready to find more on your own, when the meteor showers peak in the hours before dawn.
