Quadrantid shower: How to watch 2019's first meteors tonight

Super blood wolf moon lunar eclipse when to see it in January 2019

However, despite the relatively lengthy period in which they occur, catching the peak-where up to 100 meteors shoot across the sky-can be tricky as it only lasts around six hours. Make sure you have a chair or blanket so you can look straight up.

You will get ample opportunity to see meteor showers in 2019.

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

The new year began with the most distant flyby of a planetary object, and it continues with the Quadrantid meteor shower tonight, one of the best annual shows in the night sky, according to NASA.

You should face northeast but try to keep an eye on the entire sky.

Between January 20 and 21, a rare super blood moon total lunar eclipse will be visible in North and South America, western areas in Europe and Africa, and a partial lunar eclipse will be visible in central and eastern Africa, Europe and Asia. But EarthSky.org notes that predicting the peak of a meteor shower is just an educated guess.

Debris from the Comet Swift-Tuttle, a celestial object that orbits the earth every 133 years will trigger the Perseid meteor shower between July 17 to August 24.

Also triggered from the debris from Halley's Comet, the Orionid meteor shower will take place October 2 to November 7, peaking at night on October 21-22. The shower radiates between the Big Dipper and Boötes.

The Quadrantids arrive in the skies each year in the first week of January. The meteor shower is also triggered by debris from the Comet Tempel-Tuttle that pass through the earth.
