Catch The Quadrantid Meteor Shower Tonight!

Catch The Quadrantid Meteor Shower Tonight!

Every year, we can count on a couple of geeky New Year’s presents: 1) the Consumer Electronics Show and 2) the Quadrantid meteor shower. That’s right! It’s that time of year again. The Quadrantids will peak tonight between 7:00 and 9:00 PM EST. The shower will continue until January 12th (with most the visible meteors passing before the 5th), but your best chance of seeing it is tonight. The usually pass directly overhead, so point your telescope upward and hope for the best.
