Eta Carinids Meteor Shower

The Eta Carinids meteor shower takes place within the boundaries constellation of the Carina. The meteor showers occurs between 14-Jan - 27 Jan with the peak occuring on the 21 - Jan every year The Solar Longitude, mistakenly known as Lambda Omicron is 280.7 degrees. This value sometimes expressed as S.L. or λ ☉ is the the date of maximum activity. It is measured as a degree with zero degree indicating spring equinox (roughly March 21st/22nd). 90 is the Summer Solstice, 180 is the Autumn Equinox and 270 is the Winter Solstice. This degree is independent of the calender. AMS .

The closest star to the radiant point of the meteor shower is Foramen. The coordinates can also be determined by the Right Ascension (160) and the Declination (-60).
