May 5, 6 - Eta Aquarids Meteor Shower
The Eta Aquarids is an above average shower, capable of producing up to 30 meteors per hour at its peak when seen in the Northern Hemisphere. The shower is produced by dust particles left behind by comet Halley, which has been known and observed since ancient times and runs annually from April 19 to May 28. This year it peaks on the night of May 5 and the morning of the May 6. However, the nearly full moon will be a big problem this year blocking out all but the brightest meteors. If you are patient, you should still be able to catch a few good ones. Best viewing will be from a dark location after midnight. Meteors will radiate from the constellation Aquarius, but can appear anywhere in the sky. Reference
