They don't mention this in the description on RSOE EDIS, but I wonder if it has anything to do with this. www.abovetopsecret.com...

Apparently we are about to pass through the orbit of Haley's Comet and will have a meteor shower from debris it left behind.


The meteorite, the biggest piece of which is about the size of a human fist, has also caused a stir in the Polish scientific community as it is the first planetoid fragment in 17 years to be recovered immediately after its fall to Earth.

May 6th before dawn: The Eta Aquarid Meteor Shower Aquarids The Eta Aquarid Meteor Shower Image:Stellarium/IM Looking East-Southeast well before dawn on the morning of May 6th and given a good low horizon in that direction you should be able to spot some of the meteors that are part of the Eta Aquarid meteor shower. As it is just a few days after new Moon there will be no moonlight to hide the ~25 meteors per hour that may be seen from our northerly latitude. The Eta Aquarids result from dust particles that have been released from Comet Halley as it nears the Sun forming its "Dust Tail".
