    Meteors

    Were there supposed to be meteor showers around 5:45pm May 20th visible
    from the naked eye in Melbourne? I thought I was looking at a space
    shuttle exploding! I know there were predictions for some around the
    22nd and 23rd.

    The Earth may be passing through the debris trail of either of the two comet
    fragments Schwassman-Wachmann 3. Or it may be an unusual clump from the
    annual eta-Aquarids meteor shower (from Halley's Comet).

    Drive time radio yesterday mentioned a big meteor shower viewed from
    Brisbane too. Now the moon's buggered off, it might be worth keeping an eye
    out.

    Meteor showers are global events, as they are caused by the earth passing
    through a stream of dust particles left behind by a comet. So this current
    one would be visible from anywhere on earth that can see the point of origin
    in the sky or around it, preferably after midnight (as that is when the part
    of the earth that the observer is on is moving into the stream). If this
    current meteor activity is part of the eta-Aquarids, then anywhere where you
    can see Aquarius would allow you to see the shower.

    But if the shower is from the two comet fragments, then it would originate
    in Pegasus (which is close to Aquarius anyway).

    If anyone is interested, the real event to look for would be the comets, as
    this is one of those once-in-a-lifetime astronomical events - two comets in
    close promixity in the sky (and both may be naked eye objects too). Look for
    a "fuzzy" star.

    which bit of the sky ought one be looking at? (east south north or west?).

    North, very low to the horizon, depending on how far south you are, and
    early in the morning

    North in the area of Cygnus to Pegasus. Difficult to see without
    Binoculars.

    Looks like we may see some of the Eta Aquarids meteor shower activity, with luck, during the nights 5-8 May 2016.

    http://earthsky.org/astronomy-essent...r-shower-guide

    Will keep an eye on the late night sky in the Hunter Valley area Thurs & Fri – weather forecasts look OK for then, fingers crossed.

    Apparently most meteor shower activity is more likely visible 3am-5am, but some chance of sightings anytime when it's fully night-time dark & clear (and of course the less ambient/streets/city lights/smog the better).

    Just saw a real nice shooting star (~8:30pm, Hunter Valley NSW) high in the sky, originating across the top of Crux (Southern Cross) bearing west along the plane of the Milky Way. Lasted a touch over a second. Sweeeet.
