Although clouds can spoil the view in some areas, the Eta Aquarid or Aquarids meteor shower will be visible early Thursday and early Friday before dawn.

Eta Aquarid's meteors are known for their speed, according to NASA, and often leave luminous "trains" (debris) on their course.

Early Thursday is probably the best time for viewing. Eta Aquarid is one of two meteor showers on Earth from the debris trail of Halley's famous comet. (The other is the Orionid meteor shower in October.)
