    Space Weather news for July 26, 2003

    METEOR WATCH: Sky watchers who have been going outside between midnight
    and dawn to see Mars have lately been seeing something else, too: shooting
    stars. Mars is in the constellation Aquarius, and so is the radiant of the
    delta Aquarid meteor shower, which peaks this year on July 28th and 29th.
    This is not a major shower. It produces just 10 to 20 meteors each hour.
    But if you stand outside for 10 minutes or so, you're likely to spot a few
    delta Aquarids--a lovely bonus for Mars watchers.
