 2012 Eta Aquarid meteor shower - peaks on the night of May5-6

Stargazers could be able to catch a glimpse of the Eta Aquarids on Thursday or Friday. Eta Aquarids is a meteor shower associated with Halley's Comet. 
The radiant of the shower rises in the constellation Aquarius almost directly due east by 2:30 a.m., so between then and sunrise is the most ideal viewing time. 
The meteors can appear in any part of the sky, but their trails appear to originate near the star eta Aquarii. 
Even thought the eta Aquarid meteor shower will be seen from both hemispheres, the Southern Hemisphere has the visible advantage over the Northern Hemisphere. 
People "down under" in such countries as Australia and New Zealand will see three times as many.

Three meteoroids were seen hitting the moon last week -- all of them possible pieces of Comet Halley! The Eta Aquariid -- the meteor shower caused from Comet Halley, see post below -- radiant was positioned so that almost the entire visible part of the moon was exposed to it. On the evenings of May 9-11, members of the Meteoroid Environment Office were out doing lunar observations and a meteoroid impact was seen each night.
