Globalize/Northern[edit]

Since the radiant is above the southern horizon, meteors will primarily be fanning out through all compass points between east to north to west. Few meteors will be seen heading southward, unless they are fairly short and near the radiant.

This text describes the view from the Northern Hemisphere. This description is inadequate because the view from the Equator or the Southern Hemisphere is not discussed. However, the article does not mention that it only discusses the view from the Northern hemisphere. The article is therefore misleading and needs correction. --B.d.mills 06:04, 23 January 2007 (UTC)


I think you're overreacting a bit - adding "for Northern Hemisphere viewers" to the sentence you quoted above is all that's really required to fix that. I did this, and I think the globalization notice should be removed. Okay? int3gr4te 10:51, 11 June 2007 (UTC)

Strength[edit]

The Delta Aquariids are a "strong" shower? With 10-15 ZHR, that doesn't seem to be all that strong. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 65.215.33.194 (talk) 15:33, 27 July 2013 (UTC)
