Weather permitted continuous coverage of the eta Aquariids for the first time in many years. This fortunate occurrence allowed the author to observe the maximum activity, which peaked at around ZHR=135 ± 16 at about solar longitude (λ⊙) = 45.6°, on the morning of 2013 May 6, and at about double the zenithal hourly rate observed in recent years. A total of 256 eta Aquariids were observed in 15.68 hours observation by the author. A summary of the observations and derived shower data is provided.
