Catch the First Meteor Shower of 2013
If you're awake late tonight/early tomorrow morning, look up.
The Quadrantids meteor shower peaked this morning and will continue to shine bright (for anyone willing to roll out of bed) tomorrow morning.
While most of last year's showers were hard to see because of full moons, Thursday night/Wednesday morning's shower will have little to no moonlight interference.

Meteor showers are the result of Earth passing through fields of debris left behind by comets and asteroids. The Quadrantids is one of the brightest of the year, along with the Perseids in mid-August and the Geminids in mid-December
