Regardless of where you are, the Eta Aquarids can be a bit more inconvenient to see than other showers unless you're a very early riser.
But the Northern Hemisphere has an hourly rate of only about 10 meteors, according to NASA, because of the "viewing location of the radiant from different latitudes".
The weather will improve across the eastern United States on Sunday night, allowing people to see some meteors despite the peak of the shower falling the night prior.
"The earth is passing through debris left by that comet", observatory manager Judith Bailey at Victoria's Ballarat Observatory told Yahoo News Australia.
The meteors will seem to appear from the constellation Aquarius which gives the meteor shower its name.
The Metro reported that Nasa advises stargazers: "To view the Eta Aquarids find an area well away from city or street lights". These meteors travel at about 148,000 miles per hour into the Earth's atmosphere.
We've got a little meteor shower happening this weekend.
This dust from Halley's Comet causes two meteor shows each year with the second called the Orionids in October.
The eta-Aquarids shower is remnants of Halleys comet which has, over time, disintegrated, Wellington Space Place planterium presenter Cass Darwen said. The Earth passes through the debris every year around this time, but viewing will be particularly good this year thanks to the new moon. The last perihelion was in February 1986 and the next perihelion will be in 2061. Come prepared with a sleeping bag, blanket or lawn chair. Those tiny particles burn up as it enters the Earth's atmosphere and appear as streaks of meteors.
