Quadrantids Meteor Shower 2024: Stargazers will be treated to 120 shooting stars per hour during the Quadrantids, the first star shower of the year.

The spectacle will begin once the atmosphere of the Earth reaches the location where the remnants of the asteroid 2003 EH are floating in space.

According to information from the website space.com, the first star shower of the year will be visible on the night of 3 to 4 January 2024, for no more than six hours. This is the reason that the Quadrantids are such a fleeting phenomenon since the Earth quickly crosses the remains of the comet.

According to EarthSky, the peak of the Quadrantids is expected between 4:53 am and dawn (Eastern time).

Stargazers should avoid searching for dark skies to observe the quarter moon because it will light up the night.

As a result, the best places to view the phenomenon are in the western regions of the United States, where the moonlight may allow the fireballs of the Quadrantids to be more visible.

What is NASA’s rating of the Quadrantids?

With a frequency of more than 100 per hour from a point approaching the North Star, NASA considers Quadrantids to be one of the most intense meteor showers throughout the year.

Quadrantid origins

The Quadrantids are named after the constellation Quadran Muralis, which hasn’t been recognized by the scientific community since 1920, since most of the stars now belong to the constellation Boyero.

As mentioned above, this meteor shower was born in 2003 as a result of the aforementioned comet 2003 EH1. In December of that year, NASA’s Ames Research Center’s Peter Jenniskens found evidence that it was associated with the aforementioned comet, which probably broke up approximately 500 years ago.

Since the Quadrantid meteor shower is fainter and dimmer than the Geminids and Orionids, it is less recognized.

What is the spiritual significance of the Quadrantid Meteor Shower?

The meteor shower, which occurs in January annually, has several spiritual meanings. According to science, meteors are made of stardust, which is associated with the creation of the universe.

Regarding astrology, the cosmic dust released by the quadrantids symbolizes our deepest desires and ideals. Therefore, the appearance of the Quadrantid meteor shower provides an opportunity to manifest all desires and the intention of change to give life to old dreams and aspirations.
