Eta Aquariid meteor shower peaks 7 May, 2016 (Australia)
Don't forget, the Eta Aquariid meteor shower peaks tomorrow morning (Saturday 7 May, for Australians), although good rates will also be seen on Sunday morning (however, the weather forecast is less encouraging).
Reports for observers this morning suggested that rates will be around the predicted one very three minutes from dark sky sites. So nice bright and slow meteors were seen (and quite a few dim ones.).
More details and observing hints here.
