Quadrantid Meteor Shower Tonight

Leave a comment

Period of Activity: Tonight, through January 10th, 2021

The Quadrantids have the potential to be the strongest meteor shower of the year, however the bright waning moon and a Winter Weather Advisory in affect, it’s quite likely that we won’t see much this year, but the weather forecast is changing, so keep your fingers crossed. The meteor shower is best viewed in the Northern Hemisphere because its radiant point is so far north on the sky’s dome.

On the bright side, pun intended, the Lyrid Meteor Shower is not far off, April 16-30, 2021. The Lyrids are a medium strength meteor shower that has the potential of producing brilliant fireballs, and is also best seen from the northern hemisphere.

Star Gazing is especially good at Pond Mountain Inn with a big ski overhead and the absence of artificial light. Hope to see you in April!
