Ring in the new year this week with a spectacular meteor show1/1/2013
If you would prefer not to ring in the New Year at a gross, overpriced nightclub, the natural world has a stellar alternative -- as long as you don't mind waiting until Wednesday. That's when the Quadrantid meteor shower will be visible over the skies of the northern hemisphere, with 40 meteors per hour streaking across the sky. Though conditions aren't totally ideal - a waning gibbous moon will cast significant light into the sky -- viewers should still get quite a show. Bonus for anyone who really hates the cold: NASA will be live-streaming the whole thing. [Source]
