Hope for clearer skies as the Southern Delta Aquarid meteor shower will be visible from July 28 to 31, according to Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical, and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA).

PAGASA said the meteor shower will peak before midnight and onwards on July 29/30.

“The stream normally produces about 5-10 meteors/hour with overall activity of about 15 meteors/hour under good sky conditions. Unfortunately, the bright Moon will interfere the activity,” according to PAGASA.
