Quadrantids Meteor Shower

Anonymous's picture

The Quadrantids is an above average shower, with up to 40 meteors per hour at its peak. It is thought to be produced by dust grains left behind by an extinct comet known as 2003 EH1, which was discovered in 2003. The shower runs annually from January 1-5. It peaks this year on the night of the 3rd and morning of the 4th. The first quarter moon will set shortly after midnight, leaving fairly dark skies for what could be a good show. Best viewing will be from a dark location after midnight. Meteors will radiate from the constellation Bootes, but can appear anywhere in the sky.

This note is from Canton, the fellow who maintains the astronomical events calendar on your phone/computer/brain implant. I've just added all the meteor showers and grand celestial events for 2020. If you find any errors or omissions, please let me know at canton@gmail.com.
