Clouds blocked our view of the recent Lyrid meteor shower, but there is another chance to see “shooting stars” this weekend. The Eta Aquarids are expected to peak in the early mornings of Saturday and Sunday. The meteors come from a cloud of debris left behind by Halley's Comet, according to NASA. While the famous comet only comes by once every 76 years, twice a year Earth passes through its debris, for the Aquarids in May and the Orionids in October. The meteor shower is best viewed from the southern hemisphere, according to NASA, but provides a show up north here, too. Watch for them in the southwest sky before dawn.
