When is the Ata Aquarid meteor shower & can I see it on Merseyside


Another stunning meteor shower will be visible this month and here’s when you can spot it.

The Ata Aquarid meteor shower is caused from the dust from comet Halley collides with the earths atmosphere.

The Meteor shower will be visible throughout May but will peak on 6th & 7th May when up to 30 meteors an hour can be spotted.

The best time to see the meteor shower will be just before dawn away from any interfering light pollution, looking in any direction.

Comet Halley’s dust is regularly seen as this Meteor shower, however, the comet its self wont be visible until 2061.
