How to watch the Eta Aquarids meteor shower this weekend

One of the busiest spring meteor showers, called Eta Aquarids, peaks this weekend. To catch the “shooting stars”, just go outside and watch the southern night sky.

The Eta Aquarids reached their approximate peak on Friday morning (May 6), and they will continue to do well in the days to come, hitting up to 30 meteors per hour. And these meteors are known for their speed, reaching some 148,000 mph (just over 238,000 km/h) when they hit our atmosphere, NASA said.
