2014 Quadrantid Meteor Shower, 1/2/14-1/4/14

Even though I'm a little late to talk about it, it's time for the annual Quadrantid Meteor Shower. Technically, the peak of the meteor shower was last night to early this morning (January 2-3, 2014), but in case you missed it, its worth taking a look at the night sky tonight (the evening of January 3, 2014 to early morning January 4, 2014) as meteors don't operate on a set schedule or timeframe. This year, the Quadrantid's are easier to see as there the moon is a new moon, meaning that it is not visible in the night sky. If you're going to take a look tonight, first, bundle up as it is quite cold in a majority of the United States, and second, look toward the North-Northeast from midnight to dawn. If you're lucky, you'll see the only meteors falling through Earth's atmosphere that are named after an obsolete constellation. Good luck!
