The Zeta Perseids (ζ–Perseids) are a daylight meteor shower that takes place from about May 20 to July 5. The shower was discovered at Jodrell Bank Observatory in 1947 using radio equipment. The Zeta Perseids and Beta Taurids are both probably associated with the Taurid Complex of meteor showers. The Arietids and Zeta Perseids maxima tend to blend into one another.
