The full Moon makes capturing meteors a bit more difficult but fortunately for the Eta Aquariids the full Moon is located almost 180 degrees from the radiant so it is less problematic than it might be. This shows a typical Eta Aquariid meteor with its characteristic colors tracking back to the radiant. In Tucson AZ. Day or two before the predicted peak depending on prediction.
