Meteor Shower Tonight
Just thought I would share with you all that a rather intense but short lived meteor shower will be taking place tonight. Named "The Quadrantids Meteor Shower" it has been going for a few days now but will reach its peak intensity overnight tonight, after midnight to be more exact. Possibly 80-130 shooting stars per hour (or one every 30 seconds) could happen during the overnight. If your not a fan of staying up late, you can always get up a little early and will probably still be able to see a good amount in the pre-dawn hours as well.
So if you're looking to go freeze your behind off you have a good reason to do so. Look to the Northeast sky around a 45 degree angle. If you can find the big and little dipper in the sky, direct your eyes to just below them. The moon will be nearly dull to keep the lighting down and it's looking to be a rather clear night.
