Meteor shower at its peak July 28 and 29

A challenge, albeit a relaxing challenge will be trying to count meteors from the Southern Delta Aquarid meteor shower. This meteor shower has its radiant in the constellation Aquarius and will be at maximum July 28 to 29. Aquarius is high in the sky towards midnight. The meteors (15 to 20 per hour) will appear 20 to 30 degrees from Aquarius and radiating outwards in all directions. The best way to count meteors is to get horizontal facing south and relax. No binoculars, no telescope, no pressure to perform. Just don't snore or people might suspect you're not a serious observer.
