Quadrantids Meteor Shower

Not usually as spectacular as the Perseids (August) or Geminids (December) showers, but this year the two Big Showers happen very near the full moon. However, this Quadrantids shower will take place in the deep dark of the new moon — so this may in fact be the best shower in 2011.

From Wikipedia: “The peak intensity is exceedingly sharp: the meteor rates exceed one-half of their highest value for only about 8 hours (compared to two days for the August Perseids). This means that the stream of particles that produces this shower is narrow ��� and apparently deriving from and within the last 500-years from some orbiting body.”
