Meteor shower tonight! Each spring as Earth passes through the debris trail from Halley's Comet, the cosmic bits -- moving at 148,000 mph -- burn up in our atmosphere to create the annual Eta Aquarid meteor shower. This year's peak occurs on the night of May 5-6. Our live Ustream view of the skies over Huntsville, Ala., starts at 8:30 p.m. EDT.
