Eta Aquarids meteor shower peaking over the next two nights

Just a reminder that the Eta Aquarids meteor shower will be peaking overnight tonight and tomorrow, 5 and 6 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. The moon is gibbous at present so viewing will not be optimal but some of the brighter meteors will still be visible. Look after midnight tomorrow night, anywhere in the sky even though the radiant point is the constellation Aquarius. The full list of 2018’s other meteor showers is HERE.
