Pull out the reclining lawn chairs and get yourself to the darkest area you can find: The Eta Aquarid meteor shower is peaking this weekend, and if you get lucky, you can catch up to 30 "shooting stars" per hour.
You may also want to set your alarm clock: Sky watchers say the best time to catch the light show is in the hour or two just before dawn on Sunday.
Here in Southern California that means you'll want to start your meteor hunting around 4 a.m.
The Eta Aquarid meteor shower occurs each year in late April or early May when the Earth passes through a stream of dust and debris left in the wake of Halley's Comet.
These little bits of what the Jet Propulsion Laboratory calls "comet stuff" crash into our atmosphere at 44 miles per second, and burn up about 60 miles above the Earth's surface.
