AMMAN — Observers can watch the Eta Aquarid meteor shower during the pre-dawn hours on Wednesday, especially between 2:00 and 2:30am, Chief Islamic Justice Department Astronomer Imad Mujahed said on Monday.

Observers will be able to see around 60 meteors per hour produced by the Eta Aquarid shower during its peak.

The Eta Aquarid meteor shower is the first of two showers that occur each year as a result of Earth passing through dust released by Halley’s Comet.
