Early Bird Gets The Eta Aquarid Meteor Shower Stellarium with additions by the author

We’ve got a little meteor shower happening this weekend. The annual Eta Aquarids will peak on Sunday morning May 5, but if the weather’s poor you’ll still see a few on Saturday and Monday mornings, May 4 and 6. Halley’s Comet is responsible for the shower which produces up to 40 meteors per hour for observers in the tropics and southern hemisphere.
