If you like both tequila and stars then this day will be perfect for you. During the early morning hours on May 6 and at the same time during Cinco de Mayo festival you will get an opportunity to enjoy the 2015 Eta Aquarid meteor shower.

Every May the Eta Aquarids can be seen in the sky. As our planet goes through debris which Halley’s comet lefts behind, those meteor showers can be seen twice a year. In October we can observe Orionids.

An astronomer, Bob Berman, as well as the Slooh Observatory stated in written form that May was a slow month for meteor showers, but they would willingly take what sky offered them. They also added that these really quick annual meteors produce one every four minutes.

The speed when they enter the atmosphere is about 148,000 mph so it’s preferably for you not to blink.

The best time to observe meteor showers is during the dark times before the dawn. Although you can catch the majority of these showers on May 6, some meteors can be caught also on May 7.

According to the Earth Sky, Southern hemisphere has the best opportunity to see meteors. They can see 30 to 60 shooting stars per hour while people from Northern hemisphere will be able to see 10 to 30.

As the brightness of the moon can decrease the visibility of the natural phenomena, Slooh will live-stream Eta Aquarid Meteor Shower on May 5 at 8 p.m.

Don’t miss the opportunity to enjoy and make wishes!
