Eta Aquarid meteors 2015: When and how to see the most meteors


By: Krystal Vivian

A meteor shower is expected to shoot across the skies later this week and can be seen in Michiana.

The Eta Aquarid meteor shower will peak at a rate of 10 to 30 meteors an hour on May 6 and May 7, according to the American Meteor Society. Because of the phase of the moon, astronomers say the best time to watch will be just before dawn.

Sunrise will be at 6:36 a.m. May 6 and 6:34 a.m. May 7, according to Time and Date.

This is the last meteor shower until the Perseids meteor shower in August.
