The Annual Quadrantid meteor shower is always the first meteor show of the year. This year Northwest Ohio is in a good spot for viewing, IF the overcast cooperates and moves out of the way in the early morning hours on Monday, January 4!
The Quadrantides have been known to put out 50 or more meteors in a dark sky, but, the Quadrantids’ peak is very narrow lasting just a couple of hours. Whereas the peaks of the Perseid shower or Geminid shower often last more that a day.
Around 3:00 am on Monday through sunrise, if you are up and out and the clouds have moved away, look up towards the North Star which should be near the bottom of the Big Dipper. This area is where the Quadrantid meteors will appear to originate.
Good Luck and Happy Hunting!
