Eta Aquarid meteor shower visible predawn Friday

In the early morning sky, right before dawn on Friday, sky gazers may get to catch a glimpse of the Eta Aquarid meteor shower.

The predawn shower is the earth passing through the debris from Halley's comet. The meteor shower is best seen from the southern hemisphere, but NASA said it will still be visible around the world. It will be best visible before dawn and away from city lights.

"You may not see many, but the ones you do see are pretty spectacular," said FOX 13 Chief Meteorologist Paul Dellegatto.

"Lie on your back and look straight up at the sky, allowing your eyes 30-45 minutes to adjust to the dark. Meteors may appear from any direction, and this gives you the widest possible field of view to spot one," NASA says.
