Meteor Shower 2020: Look out for the Quadrantids this week - First meteors of the New Year 1

When is the Quadrantid meteor shower 2020?

Despite being active for about two weeks, the Quadrantid shower only produces individual meteors before the peak.

Then on the night of the peak, Earth flies through the densest part of Asteroid 2003 EH1’s orbit.

This year, the meteor shower will peak on the night of January 3 to January 4.

According to the Royal Observatory, the Quadrantids are known for a sharp peak.

In past years, the shower has produced anywhere between 50 and 100 shooting stars an hour.
