A powerful meteor shower Aquarids "spilled" on the Ground

The Eta Aquariid Meteor Shower Can Be Best Seen This Week

Every year for almost a month, from late April to late May, the Eta Aquarid meteor showers are visible from Earth.

For most observers, the eta Aquariids are only visible during the last couple of hours before the start of morning twilight.

Those in the Southern Hemisphere might not get to experience the impending total solar eclipse like our American friends, but at least we get the best version of the Eta Aquarid meteor shower.

The best place to spot them is near the Aquarius constellation. But even in the years when we can't see the comet, the debris it leaves behind creates a meteor shower, known as the Eta Aquarids, that we can enjoy every year. It's not the most spectacular shower of the year, but as it peaks tomorrow morning, you can count on it to deliver a ghostly streak of light every few minutes. The second meteor event produced by Halley's pass is the Orionid Meteor Shower.

Coastal South Florida is not considered an ideal viewing area for meteor showers, and this year the waxing gibbous moon will add to the light pollution. This is expected to peak around October 20 this year. "The shower originates in the southern part of the sky, so you are more directly facing them". Look to the southern horizon. "Since they are on the outbound leg of their orbits, these meteors arrive mainly in daylight; thus the nighttime observation interval is short and occurs just before dawn". People located further north will be still be able to catch the meteor shower, though they may see fewer meteors go by, according to EathSky.

For the best view, lay down flat on your back. This will ensure a full panorama of the horizon and will also prevent you from having a sore neck. When the shower reaches its zenith, the moon should have already set. The human eye must first adapt before it can see and distinguish the meteorites against the sky.
