Description: Calling all early risers! The new moon in early May will provide dark skies perfect for viewing the Eta Aquarids, that National Geographic is calling the best meteor shower of 2019. Sand grain-sized meteors falling during this shower are all leftover pieces of Halley’s comet, which won’t return to our skies until 2062. No special viewing equipment required. Bring a blanket or a lawn chair and a little luck and we can watch the skies together before starting our day.
