"FIRST METEOR SHOWER OF 2012: The annual Quadrantid meteor shower peaks on
Wednesday morning, Jan. 4th, when Earth passes through a narrow stream of
debris from a comet thought to have broken apart some 500 years ago. The
shower is expected to be strong (as many as 100 meteors per hour), but
elusive, with a peak that lasts no longer than a couple of hours. The
shower's radiant near Polaris favors observers in the northern hemisphere.
Images, live audio from a meteor radar, and more information are available
on today's edition of http://spaceweather.com.
