Wednesday, January 3 (7:00 PM – 9:00 PM)

The Quadrantid meteor shower is one of the most active showers of the year but peaks in a narrow six-hour window, this year predicted to be centered at 6:53 AM CST. The radiant of the Quadrantid meteor shower, the point in the sky from which all of its meteors appear to originate, lies in the constellation Boötes. The meteors of this shower are described as “lacking consistent trains but often produc[ing] fireballs.”

Come join us for the first active meteor shower of the new year!

This event is weather-dependent and will be canceled by e-mail 24 hours before the scheduled start time in the event of a cloud cover forecast greater than 40%.

Dress appropriately for lying still in nighttime cold outdoor weather. Warm beverages, many-layered clothing, and sleeping bags are all well-advised.
