How to see the Eta Aquarid meteor shower – the burst of 'shooting stars’ left behind by Halley’s Comet – peaks this weekend

The Eta Aquarid meteor shower will peak this weekend, and will be a great show for skywatchers who are in the right place at the right time.

The annual display of „shooting stars” (which are actually small meteors burning up in Earth’s atmosphere) peaks overnight on May 5 and 6, coinciding with the night of the May Full Flower Moon. Unfortunately, this can make it difficult to see anything but bright meteors.
