Quadrantid meteor shower

posted 1 Jan 2014, 13:07 by Pete Collins
Don't forget that the evening of Friday 3 January is the maximum of the Quadrantid meteor shower. The actual peak is 19.30, but as usual with meteor showers more meteors will probably be seen from late evening onwards.  Past years have seen maximum rates of about 100 meteors per hour from dark sky sites.
