Meteor Shower, Second from Third Wonders of January 2010

The Quadrantid Meteor Shower

January's best meteor shower is the Quadrantids, which peaks overnight from January 3 to 4. The meteors will be somewhat diminished by a moon just a few days past full phase. The Quadrantids can have a zenithal hourly rate of 90, which is a rather strong show. Meteor showers tend to be named after the region of sky from which they appear to emanate, but the constellation Quadrans Muralis is no longer on any star maps. This extinct constellation was in the region of Hercules, Bootes, and Draco. Look north as soon as it gets dark to catch some "shooting stars".
