How to See Tonight's Quadrantids Meteor Shower from Israel (or Anywhere Else for that Matter)

The Quadrantids meteor shower peaks early this Tuesday morning, January 4, 2011. Go out after midnight. Find as dark a location as you can. Face eastward, looking as high in the sky as you comfortably can. Lie down on your back in a sleeping bag or find a comfortable chair. Watch and enjoy. The peak is very brief and unpredictable, so stay out as long as you can. Defy the cold!!! No optical aid needed at all.


And don't forget that if you live in Europe, Africa, Asia or the Middle East, an excellent partial eclipse of the sun begins at around 9:00AM Israel Standard Time Tuesday morning, January 4, 2011.

Good luck.

Keep on looking up!
