The Quadrantids come from an asteroid, the Times reports, making them a little different than your average bunch of meteor showers.

The first meteor shower of 2019 will light up the night sky between the night of January 3, and the early morning of January 4.

Stargazers are in for a treat this month as the annual Quadrantids meteor shower is set to hit days ahead of a rare super blood moon.

Browns move Kevin Stefanski’s interview up to Thursday
Caldwell met Wednesday with general manager John Dorsey and others on the search committee at the team's facility in Berea, Ohio. In his last eight games, Mayfield completed 68 percent of his passes for 2,254 yards with 19 touchdowns and eight interceptions.

Tonight, the Quadrantids meteor shower will reach its peak for a few glorious hours.

Those in the Northern Hemisphere have the best chance of seeing them, especially if they're in a dark moonless area. If you venture out away from city lights Thursday evening and night and look for the Big Dipper, your chances of seeing a healthy amount of shooting stars are pretty good.

He continues by saying that in 2003, an astronomer by the name of Peter Jenniskens "tentatively identified" the parent body of the Quadrantids as rocky-bodied asteroid 2003 EH1, as opposed to an icy comet.

You can visit Time and Date for a better idea if you'll see it or not. It is not now included on the International Astronomical Union's list of constellations. "The Perseid meteor shower is often considered to be one of the best meteor showers of the year due to its high rates and pleasant late-summer temperatures", NASA says. As Earth's orbit passes through the debris, the bits of rock and ice collide with the atmosphere and burn up, creating bright streaks in the night sky.

For people in North America, that won't be the case this year. And give your eyes about 20 to 30 minutes to adjust to the darkness - without looking at your phone - so meteors are easier to spot.

Taking place around Christmas, residents in Asia, Eastern Europe, Western Australia, and East Africa will get to witness the celestial beauty of an annular solar eclipse, or what is also known as a partial eclipse.
