"However, the higher a shower's radiant appears in your sky, the more meteors you're likely to see".

There, the Eta Aquariid meteor shower is one of the best sky events of the year and, people may expect to see 20 to 40 meteors per hour. It's named for its radiant, or direction of origin, which appears to come from the constellation Aquarius.
From the northern hemisphere, the shooting stars often appear as "earth grazers" - long meteors that appear to skim the surface of the Earth near the horizon.
