2018 Quadrantid Meteor Shower

This shower is active from 30 December to 10 January. The peak in 2018 is close to 4pm CST on Wednesday the 3rd, meaning the nighttime period of 3/4 January is best for Baton Rouge and the local area. Please keep in mind, it is predicted to be below freezing after 9:30pm and the waning gibbous Moon will have risen to thirty degrees at 9:57pm. It can be quite dangerous to be outside and immobile in freezing weather if you do not know and take all precautions.
