This Week Is The Peak Of The Eta Aquariid

Eta Aquarids : Meteor Shower Peaks May 6th – Look Out for Shooting Start Over Perth

New Zealand is the flawless viewing platform for this weekend's annual meteor shower. In the southern hemisphere, you may be able to see as many as 40 meteors per hour, whereas in the northern hemisphere it may be fewer than 10 per hour.

The Eta Aquarids meteor shower favors the southern hemisphere, but Alan MacRobert, senior editor of Sky and Telescope magazine, said South Florida is close enough for a moderate show.

According to NASA, the Eta Aquarids are known for moving swiftly - about 148,000 miles per hour.

Eta Aquarid has been named as the "meteor of the week" by the International Meteor Organisation. "Be patient - the show will last until dawn, so you have plenty of time to catch a glimpse". Traveling away from city lights to dark skies is best, but it's possible to catch a few bright meteors (and possibly even a few fireballs) from suburban backyards, too, according to National Geographic. All the meteors Tupman sighted appeared to emanate from the constellation of Aquarius. ETA-Aquarids are visible in both the Northern and southern hemispheres in the wee hours.

There are two ways to view the Eta Aquariid meteor shower.

"Beause the Water Jar is on the celestial equator - an imaginary great circle directly above the Earth's equator - the radiant of the Eta Aquarid shower rises due east as seen from all over the world". When the Earth interacts with that rubble river, those comet bits race through our atmosphere at high speeds to produce the effect of "shooting stars".

'In the Northern Hemisphere, Eta Aquarid meteors can more often be seen as "earthgrazers"'.

The dust and pea sized gravel will fall towards Earth at a rate of about 30 per hour, leaving a bright streak in the sky commonly known as a shooting star.

The Aquariids can shine from late April through mid-May, but this year they will peak the night of May 5, especially just before dawn on May 6.
