    2014 Eta Aquarids meteor shower

    I am honestly going to be trying to get some shots of this tonight.

    2014 Eta Aquarids meteor shower

    The Eta Aquarids meteor shower are usually active between April 19 and May 28 every year. It tends to peak around May 6 or May 7.
    The Eta Aquarids seem to radiate from the direction of the constellation Aquarius in the sky. The shower is named after the brightest star of the constellation, Eta Aquarii.
    The Eta Aquarids is one of the two meteor showers associated with Halley’s Comet. The Earth passes for a second time through Halley's path around the Sun in October. This creates the Orionid meteor shower, which peaks around October 20.

    Looks like we might have to much cloud here in Adelaide, but will have camera and tripod ready to go!
