Eta Aquarids meteor shower peaking on Monday night

Just a reminder that the Eta Aquarids meteor shower will be peaking overnight Monday-Tuesday 6-7 May. It’s an above average shower that runs from late April to the middle of May, and although best seen from the southern hemisphere is still worth looking out for nearer the equator in the northern hemisphere. This year, the display will benefit from an early-setting crescent moon leaving skies free for viewing after midnight. Meteors will radiate from the constellation Aquarius, but can appear anywhere in the sky. The full list of 2019’s other meteor showers is HERE.
