    Smile Closest full Moon plus Meteor shower

    Eta Aquarids Meteor Shower

    05-05-2012 to 05-07-2012 06:00 PM to 06:00 AM
    Eta Aquarids Meteor Shower
    The Eta Aquarids are a light shower, usually producing about 10 meteors per hour at their peak. The shower's peak usually occurs on May 5 & 6, however viewing should be good on any morning from May 4 - 7. The radiant point for this shower will be in the constellation Aquarius. Best viewing is usually to the east after midnight, far from city lights.

    Closest Full Moon

    The Moon will be directly opposite the Earth from the Sun and will be fully illuminated as seen from Earth. This phase occurs at 03:35 UTC. The Moon will be at its closest point to the Earth, so this will be the largest full moon of the year.
