WATCH Delta Aquarid meteor shower 2017 live online here TONIGHT

STARGAZERS are looking forward to seeing a storm of incredible shooting stars during the peak of the Delta Aquarid meteor shower tonight. Here is how to watch the Delta Aquarids.

Slooh, a robotic telescope service, will broadcast the peak of the Aquariid Meteor Shower live from multiple places all over the world.

The live stream above will begin at 1am BST in the UK (8pm EDT) on Friday July 28 - the night that the meteor shower will be at its most intense.

Slooh said: "During the show, learn all about how these meteors come to be, and why these showers happen every year about the same time.

"You'll also hear all about the story of Aquarius, and how artists and poets have interpreted the idea of the shooting star.

"Plus, get a primer on how you can hear meteors, even when you can't see them, and learn how you can take your very own meteor shower photographs."

The Delta Aquarid meteor shower is expected to peak tonight and tomorrow but you may still be able to spot shooting stars until late August.

The meteors burst out from a single point next to a star, known as Skat or Delta Aquarii, in the constellation of Aquarius the Water Bearer.

Slooh said: “It’s still a bit of a mystery as to what causes the Delta Aquariids.
