How to see the 2021 Etta Aquarius meteor shower in Northern California

The debris of the famous Holly comet will light up the sky in California this week as part of what is known as the Eta Aquarius meteor shower. KCRA meteorologist Tamara Berg said the sky should be clear to watch the event peak early Wednesday morning. When can I see my nearest Etta Aquarius meteor shower? Look at the sky before sunrise, basically from 3 to 5 in the morning, “when you look at that sky you’re looking southeast, towards the moon,” Berg said. “Then you’ll see Jupiter, and in between you will have a chance to see what looks like a shooting star.” You can see five meteors per hour. There are many applications through Apple and Google stores that help detect galaxies and meteor showers.
