Meteor shower you can watch tonight

  • This celestial display is expected to peak on May 5-6

And, rather than only being visible every 76 years (the next Halley's Comet sighting is in 2061), the Eta Aquarids come around every year, usually between April 19-May 28 every year.

The sky will provide a socially distant entertainment activity for stargazers this week: the annual Eta Aquarid Meteor Shower.

The Earth passes through Halley's path around the sun a second time in October, which creates the Orionid meteor shower. They are essentially bits of debris which enter our planet's atmosphere, causing streaks of light.

"In a dark location, you can expect up to 50 shooting stars per hour", he said.

Ms de Sales Marques told PA: "This is a moderately active meteor shower, with a peak rate of 40 meteors per hour, and even though its radiant will be below or only just above the horizon for those of us at London's latitude, we can still look out for its meteors all across the sky".

The meteor shower will peak between 2am and 5am on Wednesday morning, presenting the best time for Australians to catch a glimpse of dozens of shooting stars by facing east.

But, a cold front could hamper WA's view of the sky show. Well, since both of those events are still outside of the realm of possibility, you can tune into this nights feature - the sky - as both Melbourne and Sydney are in for a treat of a meteor shower. One of the brightest stars within Aquarius is called Eta Aquarii, and these meteors appear from this area of the constellation.

Viewed from the United Kingdom, the constellation will be low on the eastern horizon at about 3am on Wednesday. During its peak, under optimal viewing conditions, up to 60 meteors per hour should be visible. The more sky that you can take in and see, the more meteors you will spot.

The name "super flower moon" originates from the Northern Hemeisphere, with many tracing it back to Native American tribes and the seasonal wildflower blooms in May.

"Most observers in the northern hemisphere have a two hour window prior to dawn to view these meteors", the Meteor Society said on its website. Locating the radiant point is not necessary for viewing - all you need to do is look up.

Big cities like London are not ideal because the skies tend to be very washed out.

The moon is also close to full, which means there could be some light.

But if you have a private garden of backyard you can access during the coronavirus lockdown, you can still have a go.
