During this period the moon will reach its first quarter phase on Tuesday August 29th.
At this time the half-illuminated moon will be located 90 degrees east of the sun and will set near midnight local summer time (LST) for observers located at mid-northern latitudes.
Observers viewing from urban areas will see less activity as only the brighter meteors will be visible from such locations.
The radiant (the area of the sky where meteors appear to shoot from) positions and rates listed below are exact for Saturday night/Sunday morning August 26/27.
With an entry velocity of 65 km/sec., the average meteor from this source would be of swift velocity.
The first members of the Aurigids (AUR) should appear this weekend.
With an entry velocity of 30 km/sec., the average Anthelion meteor would be of medium-slow velocity.
This area of the sky is best seen during the last dark hour before dawn when the radiant lies highest in a dark sky.These positions do not change greatly day to day so the listed coordinates may be used during this entire period.Most star atlases (available at science stores and planetariums) will provide maps with grid lines of the celestial coordinates so that you may find out exactly where these positions are located in the sky.This weekend the waxing crescent moon will set during the late evening hours allowing the more active morning hours to be free of interfering moonlight.The estimated total hourly meteor rates for evening observers this week is near 4 for those viewing from the northern hemisphere and 3 for those located south of the equator.
Viewing there will allow you to easily trace the path of each meteor back to the radiant (if it is a shower member) or in another direction if it is a sporadic.
