Bright Fireballs over U.S., Brazil, Argentina, Australia and Meteor hits Iran (Videos)

There's a full Moon, the second one this month. According to modern folklore, that makes it a "Blue Moon."

If you go outside tonight to see the sky filled with blue moonlight, you might see something else as well: the Southern Delta Aquarid (SDA) meteor shower.


Caused by debris from an ancient sungrazing comet, this shower produces 10 to 20 meteors per hour every year in late July.

No matter where you live, the best time to look for Southern Delta Aquarid meteors is during the hours between midnight and dawn when the constellation Aquarius is relatively high in the sky. This long-lasting shower is active from mid-July to late August. It overlaps with the more intense Perseid meteor shower, which peaks on Aug. 11-13.

North Carolina, a bright fireball on July 29, 2015. The fireball exploded behind a cloud, producing a bloom of light almost as bright as the waxing Blue Moon.

A bright green fireball or meteorite was seen in the Sky over Argentina Buenos Aires and over Porto Alegre in Brazil on July 30, 2015.

On the same day, July 30, 2015 people witnessed a bright fireball over NSW/QLD Australia and according to multiple sources and confirmation from Iran a Meteor appears to have struck Iran and has made multiple impacts!
