While the web sites had various predictions of the peak of the Eta Aquariid meteor shower, the weather prediction was unambiguous: if I wanted to try to see them, before dawn Sunday May 5 was the time. So even though we had some light clouds overhead, I got up at 4:30 AM to try to catch some meteors. I saw one and maybe-saw four more. Happily, the camera caught one as well.
