Ok so now is the perfect time to get out there and wish on a falling star
Time to find a quiet dark spot to see some falling stars.
It is the time of year to to pack the picnic rug and a thermos of hot chocolate with marshmallows of course.
Lay back and gaze at those stars. This is kind of romantic, to wish upon star.
The annual occurrence is known as the Eta Aquarids meteor shower, and this year observers will have prime viewing thanks to the shower coinciding with a New Moon.
The Eta Aquarids will begin around 20 April and continue until about 21 May. Astronomers say the best time to see the shower, or “shooting stars”, will be in the middle of the event, on 6 and 7 May, when the New Moon occurs. When this happens, the sky will be at its darkest, as the moon moves between the Earth and Sun and is hidden from view.
