Quadrantids Meteor Shower

December 27, 2021 - January 10, 2022
Loading Events

The Quadrantids have the potential to be the strongest shower of the year but usually fall short due to the short length of maximum activity (6 hours) and the poor weather experienced during early January. The average hourly rates one can expect under dark skies is 25. These meteors usually lack persistent trains but often produce bright fireballs. Due to the high northerly declination (celestial latitude) these meteors are not well seen from the southern hemisphere. The Quadrantids will next peak on the Jan 2-3, 2022 night. On this night, the moon will be 0% full.
