Quadrantid Meteor Shower Peaking Now

Quadrantid Meteor Shower Peaking Now

The Quadrantid meteor shower happens every year at the end of December typically ending in mid-January. It’s like a New Year’s present from the cosmos. While the shower lasts for about 3 weeks, it typically peaks for only a day or two and that is happening now. Both last night and tonight, we may be able to see up to 100 meteors per hour as the shower hits maximum visible density.
