Between a once-in-a-lifetime comet and the epic meeting of Jupiter and Saturn for the great conjunction, 2020 was a big year for celestial phenomena. But 2021 is starting off strong with the peak of the Quadrantid meteor shower, which NASA calls one of the "best annual meteor showers," this weekend, from Saturday, January 2, into Sunday, January 3.

What are the Quadrantids?

According to NASA, the Quadrantids return each year between December 28 and January 12. First seen in 1825, they originate from the small asteroid 1003 EH1, which was discovered by the Lowell Observatory Near-Earth Object Search in March 2003.
