The parent body that produced this stream of particles has not been definitively identified, though several candidates have been proposed. The Delta Aquarids (actually there is a north and south component) are a meteor shower best observed from the southern hemisphere. The radiant point for each component lies in the southern realms of Aquarius, about ten degrees north of the bright star Fomalhaut in Piscis Austrinus. This limits viewing to within about 30 degrees of the southern horizon when Aquarius arcs to its highest position around 3:00 am.
These bright and yellow meteors nearly broadside the Earth at a moderate 25.5 miles per second.
From latitudes north of the sub-tropics this shooting star display could be considered a minor one, for ten meteors or less can be viewed per hour at peak.
