Worth a Look Tonight: Quadrantid Meteor Shower

With so much of the country enjoying high pressure and few clouds (and nearly a week before the next full moon), the Quadrantid Meteor Shower ought to be a good one to watch tonight. The problem is that the peak happens at about 2 AM Eastern/1 AM Central. And, unlike last week, most of us are back at work (or school). The Quadrantid occurs between January 1 and January 5 — so all is not lost if you happen to doze off before tonight’s peak.
