The Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration said that the another meteor shower will be visible in the country from July 28 to 31.

PAGASA informed us that the estimated peak date will be before midnight and onward on July 29.

According to PAGASA administrator Nathaniel Servando the showers are part of a complex of radiants in Aquarius, Capricornus and Piscis Austrinus, all of which combine with sporadic and early Perseid activity to provide a nice display of meteors.

“The stream normally produces about five to 10 meteors per hour, with overall activity of about 15 meteors per hour under good sky conditions,” he said.
