Meteor Shower May 2020: Shooting stars Rain Courtesy of Halley’s Comet: The world is going through one of its strangest and most complex moments in recent history.

Meteor Shower May 2020: Shooting stars Rain Courtesy of Halley’s Comet
This phenomenon would actually be technically an Eta Aquarid meteor shower, originating from the tail of the popular Halley’s comet.
4 star days
The southern hemisphere of our American continent and the vicinity of the equator would be an excellent territory to observe the visual spectacle in the hours before dawn.
Same that would start illuminating the sky from this May 4 and 5. Extending its brilliance until the 6th and 7th of that same month. In which it would be visible, having the right equipment.
This is a special occasion since Halley’s Comet travels around the sun every 75 years, and now, right in this complicated 2020, it has been the turn of its trajectory.
In parallel, we will have a couple of meteorites that will pass close enough to be visible this May. So it will be an extraordinary month for fans.
