Great American Eclipse
Eta Aquarids Meteor Shower.
Produced by dust particles left behind by the comet Halley, this shower appears annually from April 19 to May 28. This year it peaks on the night of May 6 and the morning of May 7. Best viewed in the Southern Hemisphere, where it produces up to 60 meteors per hour, it provides viewers in the Northern Hemisphere about half as many meteors. A waxing gibbous moon will outshine most of the smaller meteors this year.
