The Eta Aquarid meteors appear to come from a spot near the faint star Eta Aquarii. Drawing for 5 am AEST on 6 May 2011 as seen from Sydney. Drawing Nick Lomb The best time to view the meteors is in the early morning before dawn. The above diagram is for 5 am AEST on 6 May 2011, the day when the shower is expected to be at its peak. As the dust particles hit the atmosphere they burn up and we see a streak of light in the sky. These are called meteors.
