Puppid-Velid meteor shower

Friday 26th Dec 2014

The Puppid–Velid meteor shower will reach its maximum rate of activity.

Some shooting stars will be visible each night from 17 Nov to Jan, but the best show will be expected on or around 26 December 2014.

The maximum number of meteors expected to be visible from a dark location is around 15 per hour (ZHR). The Moon will be 4 days old at the time of peak activity, and so will present minimal interference.

The radiant of the Puppid–Velid meteor shower is at around right ascension 12h17m39s , declination -65°00’00”.
