quadrantids meteor shower tonight

you have to say that word out loud... quadrantids.

if youre up late tonight in the northern hemisphere, look to the northeast... try to find the big dipper and then watch for bright meteors shooting across the sky! the quadrantids meteor showers have been observed and recorded since 1825

if you stay up late enough.... or wake up early enough tomorrow morning, look up at the incredibly bright planet venus, and the sliver moon nearby. enjoy!

I could still see the moon and Venus well after sunrise- which was quite pretty, but this high latitude stuff?

You gotta be kidding.
