Eta Aquariid Meteor Shower…

OK, twist a popular rhyme – April meteor showers bring, uh, May meteor showers too? Eta Aquariid meteor shower is coming soon.

May 5: Eta Aquariid Meteor Shower

Eta Aquariids produce 20-30 meteors per hour. Great show of super-bright meteors called fire-balls.

May 7: Last 2020 Super-moon (Flower Moon)

Next Super-moon will arrive on April 26, 2021.

May 12: Jupiter & Moon

Moon & Jupiter will have a close encounter in the morning of May 12. So close, we can view simultaneously through a telescope.

May 14: Mars & Moon

Just before dawn, moon approaches Mars in the night sky. Red planet & moon will be drawn together, easy to spot with naked eyes. 

Will keep eyes glued to the sky, need to polish night vision though…
