Quadrantid Meteor Shower Reminder

A reminder that tonight is the peak of the annual Quadrantid meteor shower. Given our 20° latitude here in Hawaii the radiant does not rise until 01:30HST, thus observations must wait until well into the morning hours. A 28% illuminated moon will rise about 02:13 to create some interference in observing the shower.

Watching meteors requires no more equipment than your eyes and a dark sky, and can be enjoyable for just about anyone.
