The Super moon isn't the only celestial show tonight
Super Moon

It would appear the sky has been double booked for May 5th. On the one hand, you''ve probably heard of the Supermoon, also known as the perigee moon, the night when the moon is cloest to Earth. At the moment the moon is most super (11:35 p.m. ET) there will also be a meteor shower.\r\n

The Eta Aquarid is a meteor shower created by dust from Halley''s Comet, and while we won''t see most of it, keep your eyes on the sky tonight, it''s not often the cosmos offers such an astounding double feature.

Will you check out the supermoon tonight?
