Quadrantid shower: How to watch 2019's first meteors tonight
03 January 2019, 09:45 | Edward Lowe
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.
If the meteor shower's name sounds odd, it's probably because it doesn't sound like it's related to a constellation, like other meteor showers.
"The radiant point for the Quadrantids is easy to find as it sits near the Big Dipper, one of the most well-known constellations in the sky", wrote AccuWeather meteorologist Brian Lada in the release.
Meteor showers usually occur when particles of comet debris enter our atmosphere and burn up, appearing as shooting stars.
Compared to other meteor showers such as Geminids or Orionids, the Quadrantids can be harder to observe due to their small peak time.
Giants GM backs Beckham, noncommittal on Manning
Gettleman would not say Wednesday whether the quarterback, who will turn 38 on Thursday, would be back for a 16th season. The dissension-ridden locker room from last season (3-13) was cleaned out, leaving only 13 players on the final roster.
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.
