Quadrantids Meteor Shower This Morning


The first meteor shower of the year will light up the sky early this morning. As the earth moves in its orbit around the sun it's always passing through remnants of cosmic debris. The Quadrantids meteor shower will put on a show into this morning, and what makes this meteor shower unique is that it originated as an asteroid. These tend to be fainter that it's more famous brethren that travel through the cosmos, but the good news is that skies will be clear over Houston, and if you can get away from bright city lights you have a shot of seeing something cosmic. The website Earth Sky says the shower is likely to be at its best from 2 a.m to dawn this morning. During its peak, 60 to as many as 200 meteors should be visible all across the sky.
