HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) -

Attention, stargazers! If you like watching stars and showers in the night sky, clear some space for Tuesday.

The Southern Delta Aquariids will peak Tuesday and Wednesday. Though considered a minor shower, the 15-20 meteors per hour will be provided courtesy of debris from Comet 96P/Machholz.

Marshall Space Flight Center will be streaming the shower live beginning at 8:30 p.m. CDT. There will also be an audio stream provided by Space Weather Radio.
