Quadrantid meteor shower tonight.

This is one of the least studied meteor shower, because it happens on a very cold night every year. You should be able to see about one “shooting star” per minute starting around 1:00 a.m. EST. So if you did not get what you wanted for Christmas you can make your wish tonight on a falling star. Look for the meteors to radiate from the end of the Big Dipper’s handle to the head of Draco the Dragon.
