Here’s how to watch tonight’s stunning quadruple meteor shower

The quadruple meteor shower is at its zenith, and North American skywatchers have a good chance of seeing the tail end of the show tonight.

This annual meteorite typically peaks between January 3 and January 4 each year. I submitted this year so far Less than ideal views for sky watchers, Given that the moon was 81% full overnight on January 3rd. Quaternary meteorites are rather faint, so moonlight can easily wash off them. However, the moon is diminishing, so January 4 may allow for better meteorite monitoring, if at a lower rate than it was during the January 3 peak.
