Quadrantids Meteor Shower to show in Philadelphia early on 1/4

The Quadrantids meteor shower, which can potentially be the best natural lightshow of the year, will be visible Tuesday night and early Wednesday morning. Viewing conditions will be ideal around Philadelphia with clear skies but it will be quite frigid with temperatures only about 20 degrees.

The peak is predicted to be somewhere around 2:30 to 3 a.m., though Quadrantids meteors are "notoriously unpredictable" in terms of intensity. NASA says it will be a "brief, beautiful" show.

If you don't want to go outside and watch, you can always check out this live stream:



If you do venture out, be sure to bundle up considerably, and do not stay out too long. The Quadtrantids will appear to radiate about one third up in the east north east sky just underneath the handle of the up turned "Big Dipper".

If you happen to get a good picture post it here.
