Quadrantids 2017

January 1 - 5, 2017 in the World

The Quadrantids are an easily visible January meteor shower. The entire activity period of the Quadrantids runs from January 1 to 5, 2017.

The radiant of this shower is an area inside the constellation Bo÷tes. The name comes from Quadrans Muralis, an obsolete constellation that is now part of Bo÷tes. It lies between the end of the handle of the Big Dipper and the quadrilateral of stars marking the head of the constellation Draco.

Adolphe Quetelet of the Brussels Observatory discovered the shower in the 1830s, and shortly afterward it was noted by several other astronomers in Europe and America. (From: Wikipedia, license: CCA-SA)
