It is also notorious for observing January due to its difficult climate and short peak – about six hours. It will be seen in the Northern Hemisphere between local time and 2 p.m.
Typically 50 to 100 meteors appear every hour, especially in rural areas. While the bright moon will reduce this number, you will be able to see more meteors if the sky is clear in your area.
If the name of the meteor shower sounds weird, it’s probably because it doesn’t sound like it’s related to a constellation like other meteor showers. This is because a constellation called Quadrantids no longer exists – at least not as a valid constellation.
The constellation Quadrans Muralis, which was first observed and noted between Boots and Draco in 1795, is no longer included in the International Astronomical Union’s list of modern stars because it is considered obsolete.
A meteor shower spreads between the Big Dipper and the boots.
The short peak of a fountain is due to the fact that only small particles flow in contact with our atmosphere, and the flow is perpendicular. Every year, the earth passes through this debris foot for a short time.
If you live in an urban area, you can drive to a place that is not filled with city lights that will obstruct your view. If you are able to locate an area affected by light pollution, meteors can appear every minute from late evening until late afternoon.
Find an open area with a wide view of the sky and don’t forget to bundle up. Make sure you have a chair or blanket so you can look straight up. And give your eyes about 20 to 30 minutes to adjust to the dark – without looking at your phone – so that meteors will be easier to find.
