Quadrantid Meteor Shower 2012 Most Viewable 4AM January 4th
If you are a star gazer, then you will be happy to hear about the Quadrantid Meteor Shower tomorrow morning. Break out your equipment and wake up early!
The shower will be at its most visible at 4AM Central time. If you ate your black eyed peas and cornbread, you might be lucky enough to see a great show.
The Quandratids are normally the most intense of the meteor showers viewable from Earth. It is a fairly short shower as it originates from the Earth passing a narrow tail of debris from asteroid 2003 E1. It is thought to only last for a few hours.
You could see anywhere from 60-200 streaks across the sky in just one hour. Make sure you bundle up and take advantage of the cold weather. The colder it is, the better viewing for meteor showers! So enjoy and let us know what you see.
