Earth is entering a diffuse stream of debris from Halley’s Comet, source of the annual eta Aquarid meteor shower. Last night, NASA’s network of all-sky meteor cameras detected 5 eta Aquarid fireballs over the USA. This one was bright enough to see through the glare of the waxing full Moon.

The shower is expected to peak on May 5-6 when our planet passes through the heart of the debris stream. Unfortunately, not all of the eta Aquarids are fireballs. A typical meteor from Halley’s Comet is about as bright as the stars of the Big Dipper–not so easy to see in the glaring moonlight.

Nevertheless, sky watchers could still see dozens of meteors. The best time to look is before before local sunrise on May 6th. Eta Aquarids are fast, moving at 66 km/s (148,000 mph), and often trace long bright paths across the sky. Set your alarm and enjoy the show.

About Earth Changes Media w/ Mitch Battros

Mitch Battros is a scientific journalist who is highly respected in both the scientific and spiritual communities due to his unique ability to bridge the gap between modern science and ancient text. Founded in 1995 – Earth Changes TV was born with Battros as its creator and chief editor for his syndicated television show. In 2003, he switched to a weekly radio show as Earth Changes Media. ECM quickly found its way in becoming a top source for news and discoveries in the scientific fields of astrophysics, space weather, earth science, and ancient text. Seeing the need to venture beyond the Sun-Earth connection, in 2016 Battros advanced his studies which incorporates our galaxy Milky Way - and its seemingly rhythmic cycles directly connected to our Solar System, Sun, and Earth driven by the source of charged particles such as galactic cosmic rays, gamma rays, and solar rays. Now, "Science Of Cycles" is the vehicle which brings the latest cutting-edge discoveries confirming his published Equation.
