"Flakey" Halley's Comet meteors can be seen Wednesday morning

Comets leave behind small particles in space. The space in the sky is defined by the orbit that trails near the Earth. When the Earth enters the orbital area left behind by the comets,  these particles enter the atmosphere and can be seen as "meteors" which streak across the sky. Wednesday night is the best time to see these Eta Aquarid meteors from the Southern or Northern Hemisphere. More here at
