Eta Aquariids Meteor Shower To Peak Between this month Here's All About It
the Earth is bringing another similar celestial event this week. Called the Eta Aquariids
the meteor shower would be visible in both northern and southern hemisphere countries,
The Eta Aquariids are leftover pieces of the Halley’s Comet, which is famous for being visible from Earth every 76 years
this comet was last spotted from Earth in 1986 and won’t be visible again until mid-2061
it results from our planet making a pass through the Halley comet's debris at this time of the year.
the name Eta Aquariid is derived from its direction of origin- the constellation of Aquarius.
one can spot up to 30 meteors every hour although the visibility largely depends on the brightness of the moon.
