Stunning Eta Aquarids Meteor Shower And Super Flower Moon Happening This Week

The stunning Eta Aquarids Meteor Shower and the Super Flower Moon are both going to be visible for keen stargazers to enjoy this week.

During this lockdown period, people are enjoying the smaller things in life; from baking to gardening, we’re learning how to entertain ourselves in different ways. Stargazing is one of the hobby most people can easily do, and now is a great time to take it up as there’s loads to witness.

Last month we saw the amazing Lyrid Meteor Shower grace the skies for several days, during the period hundreds of thousands of shooting stars flew across the sky every hour.

This week we’ll be lucky to witness another shower known as the Eta Aquarids Meteor Shower, which is set to hit its peak this week. The shower in fact started April 19 and will continue until May 31 – but this Tuesday, May 5, is when it will be most visible to us.

For those of you pondering what the heck the difference between a meteor shower and, say, a random shooting star is, they occur when a comet gets close to the sun and its icy surfaces burn off. Meteor showers are likely to originate from one point in the night sky whereas shooting stars are more random. Amazing, right?

The shower is expected to produce around 60 meteors an hour, as Forbes  reports. However, the peak of the shower is very close to a full moon, which could make the meteors little bit more tough to spot.
