We are currently experiencing the peak of the Eta Aquariids (ETA) meteor shower. The ETAs should start ramping down though, to be honest, the bright Moon will make any ETA watching very difficult in the coming days anyway.
Last night was the first mostly cloudy night in Tucson in quite some time. Luckily, it was clear for the last 2 hours of the night when the ETAs were active. The weather will continue to be poor for astronomy for the next few nights. In fact, we got our first rain since the very end of March (~0.13″ this afternoon with more expected tonight and tomorrow).
