What is the Quadrantids?

    It is January now which means that we are in the month of the Quadrantids. The Quadrantids is a series of over 50 meteors showering in the sky. It's most apparent day was yesterday, January 4th, in the early morning but could last a bit longer. See? Even the sky likes to participate in New Years fireworks!
