In Aus, just before sunrise - anytime from 4:30 - 6:30am is the best viewing time.

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.

True that, Sorry guys!! dont know were I got my calculations from... The radiant rises at about 2 am in New Zealand, so observation is best from about 5 am by which time the radiant has a reasonable altitude. The radiant culminates at about 08h local time.

Well worth the 0 degree celcius morning here in Canberra - crystal clear sky, and probably 30 shooting stars within the 45 minute period.

Beautiful

Stayed up all night here in Auckland and through the early hours, also left web-cam recording, however there was no break in the cloud cover
now very tired and a tornado warning has been issued for Auckland......
sigh...

4AM here in the SE USA & a bit cold at that. Running in and out & have only seen one so far. Aquarius is just now coming over the horizon, so maybe it'll pick up here in a bit...

edit:

Saw a good 5-8 of em, but nothing like what others are saying they saw. They're probably in the Southern Hemisphere.
