#During its peak, the #Quadrantid meteor shower can produce between 60 and 200 fireballs per hour at speeds of about 41 kilometers per second. #However, the intense light of the #Moon will dull its brightness.

#Where and how to observe the phenomenon?

#According to astronomers, the visibility of the event will be higher in the northern hemisphere.

#To see the #Quadrantids, you have to look for an area well away from city lights, which has few obstacles to view, NASA experts advise.

A sleeping bag, blanket, or folding chair can be brought along, as the show will last through the night until dawn. #It is better to lie on your back with your feet facing northeast and looking up: in less than 30 minutes, the eyes will adapt to the dark and they will be able to see the meteors.

#If you liked it, share it with your friends!
