Eta Aquariid Meteor Shower Peak

Presented by Comet 1P Halley

Eta Aquariid Meteor Shower Peak

The Eta Aquariid meteor shower is visible from April 19th until May 28th, but it peaks in WA at 4am on May 6th – that’ll be your best chance to spot something, with around 50 meteors per hour visible in the sky.

If you’ve never tried stargazing before, don’t worry – we’ve put together a handy guide to getting started.

(For a bonus fun fact, these meteors are fragments of Halley’s Comet, perhaps the most famous comet in the solar system, which is due to return in 2061)
