Quadrantid Meteor Shower 2021: When, Where & How to See It


2021 will be a lackluster year to see the annual Quadrantid meteor shower during its sharp peak overnight on Saturday (Jan. 2) and into the early morning hours of Sunday (Jan. 3).

The Quadrantid meteor shower is not as well-known as other meteor showers like the Geminids or Orionids, because the meteors are fainter and easier to miss. However, they can produce fireballs with giant, glowing tails highlighting the meteors’ paths across the sky.
