Final supermoon of 2020, meteor shower May 6th Ritual Emergency Pay per view

Final supermoon of 2020, meteor shower May 6th Moon Ritual Emergency Pay per view

We\'ve made it to May and with that comes some astronomical viewing.

This month holds the final supermoon of the year along with a meteor shower just a couple days before.

On May 5, skygazers across the world will be able to watch the Eta Aquarids meteor showers. Although this meteor shower has been active since April 19, the forecast calls for the greatest number of Eta Aquariid meteors to fall before dawn on Tuesday, May 5.

According to EarthSky, the meteor shower can produce up to 20 to 40 shooting stars per hour. But this year, the shower will have to contend with the nearly full moon, causing some viewing disruption. The Eta Aquariid will be visible across the globe but best seen from the southern hemisphere.

Following the Aquariids meteor shower, astronomy lovers can view the final supermoon of the year.
