An NBC4 viewer sent us dashcam video from the eastbound 10 Freeway near Mid-City/downtown Los Angeles.
On Friday and Saturday there could to be up to 60 meteors an hour.
The Eta Aquariids are one of two meteor showers created by debris from Halley's Comet.
Thanks for reading, and just look up, you never know what you will see!
"If you can find the Water Jar in the constellation Aquarius, you've as good as located the radiant point for the Eta Aquarid meteors", says McClure.
What are the Eta Aquarids?

"We have over 14 universities and our literacy rate is over 90 [%] - the highest in Africa", he said, adding that the economy was improving.
Look for the constellation Aquarius-the meteors are thought to stem from Eta Aquarii, one of its brightest stars, which is called the "radiant".
The breathtaking astronomical spectacle will take place on May 5 and 6 but stargazers might find that the best time to watch the meteors is on the night of May 6 and the morning of May 7.
The shooting stars will appear to originate from the constellation of Aquarius.
But each year, Earth intersects with the castoff stream of dirt, ice and sand from the comet, bringing the Eta Aquarids in May and the Orionids in October. This year's meteor shower is said to be the best on record. The moon will be setting as the radiant for the Eta Aquarids rises in the east, so every passing day means more lunar light pollution. In the Northern hemisphere the meteors can often be seen just above the horizon.
The dust and pea sized gravel will fall towards Earth at a rate of about 30 per hour, leaving a bright streak in the sky commonly known as a shooting star.
Observers in the southern hemisphere will have the best view, and will see the shower's radiant in the north.
Reside in the northern hemisphere? "These are swift meteors that produce a high percentage of persistent trains, but few fireballs".
