Eta Aquarids meteor shower peaking on Wednesday night

The Eta Aquarids meteor shower will be peaking overnight tomorrow, Wednesday 5-6 May, an above average shower that runs from late April to the middle of May. Although best seen from the southern hemisphere it’s still worth looking for nearer the equator in the northern hemisphere, but this year it will mean a very early (or late!) start … look towards the east and southeast from around 3.30am or so.
