(WTNH) — Two meteor showers will peak in the night sky on Monday night in to Tuesday night over Connecticut.

Both the Alpha Capricornids and the Delta Aquarids will be visible around midnight on Monday, July 29 in to the early hours of Tuesday, July 30th.

The two showers can produce up to 20 – 25 meteors per hour combined, according to NASA.

No special viewing equipment is needed, just a clear dark sky when viewing with little light pollution.

Keep your eyes on the sky throughout August! The Perseids Meteor Shower is much larger and will peak on August 12 through August 13th.
