A fresh look at the 2014 Eta Aquarid meteor shower.

The 2014 Eta Aquarid meteor shower displays its many sides in this image collage from NASA’s Meteoroid Environment Office in Huntsville, Alabama. The image on the far left shows two meteors within a one-second observation from a camera belonging to the NASA All Sky Fireball Network in Pennsylvania. In the middle is a false-color image of an Eta Aquarid meteor seen at sunrise in Tennessee. The whimiscal far-right image catches a spider taking a break to observe the meteor shower from Ohio.
