Eta Aquarid meteor shower radiant point
The Eta Aquarid meteor shower follows so closely behind April’s Lyrid meteor shower that it tends to be overlooked each year. Don’t overlook it! It’s an awesome shower for the Southern Hemisphere with perhaps 40 meteors per hour visible at the peak. The shower is less visible to northern observers, but tropical latitudes in the Northern Hemisphere should have a good view, and even mid-northern latitudes can expect about 10 meteors per hour at the peak – still a good meteor display.
