Meteor Shower visible tonight

If you’re out late tonight or during the pre-dawn hours Friday — LOOK UP!  You may be able to view the Quadrantids Meteor Shower.

The moon will not be giving off much light, so these will be easier to see.  Eastern Iowa’s forecast is for a clear sky with temperatures in the 20s.

All you have to do is be away from city lights, look in the north/northeast sky toward the Big Dipper, and you may catch a glimpse.

EarthSky.org has much more information on the Quadrantids.  It says 50 to 100 meteors per hour.  The Northern Hemisphere has the best viewing possibility.  The peak technically occurs at 8 PM Iowa time, so globally, Europe has the best chance to see the meteor shower.

Happy viewing.  Click this link for more information on the Quadrantids.
