Eta Aquarids 2009

METEOR SHOWER: Earth is entering a stream of dusty debris from Halley’s Comet, the source of the annual eta Aquarid meteor shower. Forecasters expect the shower to peak on Wednesday 6th May, with as many as 20-30 per hour predicted in the UK.  The best time to look is during the dark hour before local sunrise on Wednesday morning.
