Two much weaker showers are also active at this time of year, the Delta Aquarids and Kappa Cygnids
. And there are always a few sporadics too.
Weaker still are the Kappa Cygnids
, identifiable by their flight direction away from Cygnus in an altogether different part of the sky.
You may also see occasional meteors from two lesser showers that are also active: the Delta Aquarids and Kappa Cygnids
. These move noticeably slower than Perseids, and they travel in different directions as if originating from their respective constellations.
You may also see occasional meteors from two lesser showers that are active at the same time: the Delta Aquarids and Kappa Cygnids
. These fly noticeably slower than Perseids.
If you don't keep track of other showers (the weaker Delta Aquarids and Kappa Cygnids
are also active in mid-August), you can simply record a meteor as either P for Perseid or NP for non-Perseid.
