Piscis Australid meteor shower

Wednesday 30th Jul 201423:00

The Piscis Australid meteor shower will reach its maximum rate of activity.

Some shooting stars will be visible each night from 15 Jul to 20 Aug, but the best show will be expected on or around 31 July 2014.

The maximum number of meteors expected to be visible from a dark location is around 5 per hour (ZHR). The Moon will be 5 days old at the time of peak activity, and so will present minimal interference.

The radiant of the Piscis Australid meteor shower is at around right ascension 22h34m09s , declination -30°00’00”.
