Quadrantids meteor shower may dazzle under moonless sky late tonight – Capital Weather Gang – The Washington Post

I plan to recap New Year’s festivities and get back into my regular blogging schedule tomorrow.  But I wanted to share this lesser-known but really awesome meteor shower with you.  If you’re in the Eastern Time Zone, the meteors will be at their peak between 3 am and 4 am.  Bundle up!–It’s going to be very cold.  But it will be worth it to take a gander:

I plan on taking Starkitten to see them, if she is cooperative.  The results of this experience will be part of tomorrow’s blog post.

Happy New Year!

And happy stargazing!

      It’s happening tonight. So if you’re in the northern hemisphere, you will get a chance to see it. You’ll need to check the weather to make sure the skies will be clear.
