STAR gazers hoping to see relics of Haley's comet light up the sky should head to the hill near the former Golden Square high school.
Anywhere with unobstructed views of the heavens from horizon to horizon was good to view meteor showers light up the sky, Bendigo astronomer Chris Wyatt said.
The Golden Square hill had good views to the east, where many of the meteors would appear, the Astronomical Society of Victoria Bendigo Section member said.
Some of the most impressive showers had appeared Saturday night when the earth first moved into dust and ice left by Haley's comet in 1986, Mr Wyatt said.
But it was not too late to witness the so-called Eta Aquarid shower, which is named after the star from which meteors appeared to emanate.
The star is part of the constellation known as Aquarius' water jug.
"The best time is in the wee small hours. Look towards the east as the constellation rises after midnight," Mr Wyatt said.
More meteors through to Thursday, Australian National University astronomer Brad Tucker said.
