First meteor shower of the year peaks Thursday night, Friday morning
DENVER -- The new year began with the most distant flyby of a planetary object, and it continues with the Quadrantid meteor shower on Thursday night, one of the best annual shows in the night sky, according to NASA. A moonless night should help chances to see it between midnight and dawn, but location is also a factor with this one-night-only meteor shower peak.
