Omega Cetids Meteor Shower

The Omega Cetids meteor shower takes place within the boundaries constellation of the Cetus. The meteor showers occurs between 5 May- 9 Jun with the peak occuring on the 07-May every year

Omega Cetids are an obscure, small meteor shower. There is not much available information on the internet regarding the Omega Cetids. What has been determind is that there are two meteor showers, Southern Daytime Omega Cetids and you`ve guessed it, Northern equivalent. Given they`re daytime, you`ll find it hard to see them.

The name of the Meteor Shower would indicate that the radiant point, i.e. the point that the meteors would be appearing from would be Omega Ceti. However it is hard to locate that star within the constellation.

The coordinates can also be determined by the Right Ascension (1) and the Declination (-7).

The Zenith Hourly Rate or how many you expect to see during the hour is 8. The ZHR can radically increase if the comet or associated object is close by. The speed/velocity of the Meteor Shower particles is 38 km/s.
