2013 Eta Aquarid Meteor Shower From Halley’s Comet

Posted: 04 May 2013 12:40 PM PDT

halley_giottoThe bad news is that the last time Halley’s Comet was visible on Earth was 1986 and unfortunately, it won’t be visible again until 2061.  The good news is that twice a year, us Earthlings can see the remnants left behind in the form of two separate meteor showers.  The earliest one is the Eta Aquarid meteor shower that arrives around this time every year and this year, the 2013 Eta Aquarid meteor shower will peak in the morning hours of Sunday, May 5.   The peak is expected to be around approximately 3:00 a.m. as we sweep through the ‘cosmic litter’ of Halley’s Comet.  Later this year, around Mid-October, the second meteor shower will be visible.

Under a dark, moonless night during this annual meteor shower observers can expect to see 50 to 60 meteors per hour.  For this weekend’s show, the moon will be in a waning crescent phase and will only be illuminated by 20%, which means that it will only create minimal disturbance in viewing the event.  Meteor showers typically get their name by what constellation they appear to originate from and in this case, the Eta Aquarids come from the water jar of the Aquarius constellation, so you’ll want to look in that direction for them to originate.   This will be a problem the farther north you live because this constellation won’t come very high off the horizon for you.  As a matter of fact, those in lower latitudes here in the United States, might see up to 10 per hour, however, folks in New York aren’t expected to see any at all.
