How to watch the first meteor shower of the year tonight.

Often the strongest of the year, at its peak, the Quadrantid meteor shower can produce over 100 meteors per hour. It should peak at 4AM ET on Thursday, but NASA predicts it’ll be most visible around midnight — specifically, about an hour or two before 2:29AM ET when the moon rises.

Alternatively, you can watch a livestream of the meteor shower from the Subaru telescope — if the weather permits, of course.
