The Eta Aquarids meteor shower could be visible in Bahrain tonight.

The shower, which is created by debris from the comet Halley, takes place every year in April and May.

This year, it is set to peak between the evening of May 5 and the morning of May 6, with an average of 30 meteors an hour.

It’s set to be a sight to behold as meteors from the comet Halley are fast, meaning they can leave glowing trains behind which can last for minutes.

Comet Halley is considered to be the most famous comet – and even features in the Bayeux tapestry.

According to NASA, to view the Eta Aquarids you should be at an area well away from the city or any street lights. After about 30 minutes in the dark, your eyes will have adjusted enough and you’ll begin to see the meteors, with the show lasting until dawn
