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 best hours are late night and early predawn-and tonight is when the show is going to reach its peak. The Quadrantids are known for bright, colorful fireball meteors because of the large particles of an asteroid interacting with our atmosphere.
According to daily radio series EarthSky, the peak of the shower will unfold from the morning of January 4 (Friday) into the first few hours of January 5 (Qatar time). You'll want to face northeast.
Be sure you look up if you're outdoors tonight, the meteor shower of the year will be splashing the sky with hundreds of meteors as we get into Friday, during its peak, the Quadrantid meteor shower can shoot up to 100 meteors per hour! Though the moon may block out the full light show, on April 23 you might be able to catch a glimpse of the Lyrid meteor shower.
"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. Just a few days later, a partial solar eclipse will take place this weekend.
