And it always helps to have good weather when viewing any meteor shower or other astronomical phenomena.

The Eta Aquarid meteor shower contains the remnants of the famous Halley comet that appears every 75 years.

When is the meteor shower? NASA said we can expect to see about 10 meteors per hour during the peak.

"S$3 ince they move very quickly - about 148,000 miles per hour (238,000 km/h) - they leave very long "tails" in the sky", Rae Paoletta explains for Gizmodo. "These are swift meteors that produce a high percentage of persistent trains, but few fireballs".
