The new Arid meteor shower may be making itself known in early October 2021.

It's not every day that we witness an outburst from a new meteor shower gracing the skies of the Earth.

But that's just what may be in store this week for fortunate observers deep in the southern hemisphere, with the advent of the Arid meteors.

The source of the shower is short period Comet 15P/Finlay.

On a 6.5 year orbit, Comet 15P reached perihelion on July 13th this past summer, and its debris trail intersects the Earth's orbit in early October.
