Look north to find the centre (radiant point).

The meteor shower will last only a short time as the debris we will pass through is narrow.

This year’s shower may be quite productive, showing 40, or 80, or 100, or 200 meteors per hour depending on who is estimating it. One point commentators agree on is that the Quadrantids are unpredictable.
