The next few nights the Southern Delta Aquariid meteor shower will peak (American Meteor Society). This meteor shower is usually best seen from the southern tropics (American Meteor Society). The Perseid meteor shower is taking place as well, but it will not peak until August 11th and 12th (Sky & Telescope). Nonetheless, this shower may still produce a few meteors from time to time before its peak (Sky & Telescope).
Thursday night the bright star Regulus and Mars will also be in conjunction (Sky & Telescope). The image below shows what to look for in the sky.
