ABC7 reached out to Dr. Ed Krupp, director of the Griffith Observatory, who stated the Delta Aquarids Meteor Shower was set to peak Wednesday evening.


Due to the radiant point being low in the southern sky, Krupp said it was possible that light spotted in the sky was part of the Delta Aquarids Meteor Shower.



Krupp also said the Perseid Meteor Shower was also a possibility, as it's supposed to peak in mid-August.
