Named for a now-defunct constellation called the Mural Quadrant, the Quadrantids meteor shower runs from December 30 to Jan. 12 every year.

Quadrantids meteors always travel away from the shower's radiant, which lies in the northern sky beyond the tip of the Big Dipper's handle.

This shower commonly produces bright fireballs because it is produced by particles from an asteroid designated 2003EH.

With the peak on Monday afternoon in the Americas, the optimal times for viewing Quadrantids there will be before dawn on both Monday and Tuesday.
