The Quadrantids meteor shower is typically active between December 28 - January 12 and is "considered to be one of the best annual meteor showers", according to NASA's website. The Gazette reports it'll peak between midnight and dawn on Friday with up to 100 meteors are expected per hour.
Those in the Northern Hemisphere have the best chance of seeing them, especially if they're in a dark moonless area.
Nasa said the Quadrantids are "one of the best annual meteor showers".
The Quadrantids, which has been ongoing since the last couple days of December, has a reputation for being hard to observe, though Thursday night is your best chance.
For optimal viewing, it's recommended you drive away from the city and any bright lights - places like the grounds of the Lake Afton Public Observatory or a countryside spot are ideal. Temperatures will be chilly so make sure to bundle up!
Experts recommend dedicating at least 45 minutes to viewing the meteor shower - as eyes can require up to 30 minutes to adjust to the darkness.
On January 5 and 6, depending on where you live, a partial solar eclipse will be visible in China, in North and South Korea, in Japan, in Russian Federation, and over the North Pacific Ocean and the Aleutian Islands.
