Eta Aquarids Meteor Shower 2017

On May 5 and 6 (peak), 2017 before dawn, is the Eta Aquariids meteor shower.

The Eta Aquariids meteor shower is debris from Halley’s Comet.

The best time to watch these meteors is in the early morning hours, before the beginning of morning twilight (see below).

Give yourself at least an hour of viewing time for watching as there will be lulls. Remember that it may take up to 20 minutes for your eyes to adjust to the dark.

Some meteors may fly in the dark hour before dawn for a few days before and after May 5/6.

May 4 — morning twilight: 4:24 AM
May 5 — morning twilight: 4:22 AM
May 6 — morning twilight: 4:21 AM

Record Store Day 2017

Saturday, April 22 is Record Store Day.

“This is a day for the people who make up the world of the record store—the staff, the customers, and the artists—to come together and celebrate the unique culture of a record store and the special role these independently owned stores play in their communities. Special vinyl and CD releases and various promotional products are made exclusively for the day. Festivities include performances, cook-outs, body painting, meet & greets with artists, parades, DJs spinning records.”

The artists releasing special vinyls include Madonna, John Coltrane, Bob Dylan, The Kinks, Willie Nelson, David Bowie, and others.
