The Quadrantid meteor shower is tonight. Here’s how, when, and why to watch the meteor shower—and what a mysterious “disappeared constellation” has to do with it all.

Quadrantid Meteors Fly in Moonlight in Early January - In the northern hemisphere, the showers will be best viewed between midnight and dawn - January 3 & 4 - and may produce up to 50 or more meteors per hour. This year, though, the bright, gibbous moon will wash out all but the brightest meteors. Near dawn, the moon will cast moon shadows, making viewing better if you can sit in the shadows with an otherwise clear view of the sky

Everything you need to know: Quadrantid meteor shower~ The 2014 Quadrantid meteor shower is likely to be at its best before dawn on January 3 for North America, and before dawn on January 4 in Asia.

Quandrantid Meteors and Zodiac Lights over the Florida Keys 2 - Astrophotographer Jeff Berkes took this photo Jan. 4, 2012, and said: "I captured at least a dozen meteors and counted about 100.
