Quadrantids on the 3rd/4th January

This year the Quadrantids meteor show peaks at 02:00UT on the 4th January 2018. Unfortunately a full moon will drown out all but the brightest meteors. See the picture below of where to find the radiant and then look to the west of it (i.e. towards the North) to minimise the impact of the full moon.

This shows the position of the radiant for the 4th January 2018, 02:00UT from Abingdon.

Clear skies.
