Meteor Shower Tonight

NEW YEARS Fireworks from Shattered Comet

Aeschyus' first tragedy
conkers fall from the sky
wasn't a Persian war
opening with crossbar

Quadrantid meteors 
are ancient anchors
Astronomers missed 
reveal dawn's mist

twilight tomorrow 
plasma gives bravo
north east ascend
warm with a friend

Pomegranate splay
dawn becomes day
touch the stars
fireflies in jars. 

1400 GMT on Tuesday, Jan. 3; that corresponds to 9 a.m. Eastern Time, 6 a.m. Pacific Time.  Get up early or stay up all night. I'm excited, where I live has no ambient light.
Early the break of dawn, the radiant of this shower — the spot from which the meteors appear to emanate — will be ascending the dark northeastern sky.  
meteor shower tonight - give or take a few hours around 5 AM
