Because this peak is so brief, some parts of the world may not be able to see the shower.

During ideal conditions, anywhere from 60 to over 100 meteors per hour can be seen during the peak, they report.

Tonight, the Quadrantids meteor shower will reach its peak for a few glorious hours.

Nasa believes that between 60 and 200 Quadrantid meteors can be seen per hour under flawless conditions during the shower's peak.

Best chances: Those in the Northern Hemisphere, like Europe and nearby areas, will have the best chances to see it, Fox 6 reports.

You can visit Time and Date for a better idea if you'll see it or not. The shower will happen between the Big Dipper and Bootes constellations. It is not now included on the International Astronomical Union's list of constellations. The meteors will be visible anywhere in the sky.

The shower's short peak is because only a small stream of particles interacts with our atmosphere, and the stream occurs at a perpendicular angle.

This year's show doesn't have great timing for North American observations.

For the best views find a safe location that is away from sources of light pollution such as street lights and where you can scan the whole sky. Make sure you have a chair or blanket so you can look straight up. Lie flat on your back with feet facing northeast and look up at the sky - it should take less than 30 minutes for your eyes to adjust to the dark.
