The Quadrantid Meteor Shower

The Quadrantid meteor shower is one of the year's best, producing more than 100 meteors per hour from a radiant near the North Star. This year the shower peaks on Jan. 3rd. The timing favors observers in western North America and Across the Pacific Ocean. The best time to look: during the dark hours before sunrise on Saturday morning.

I found your blog looking for cupcake couture! I once did an article on them for the Northwest Weekly. Aren't they great?
