A spectacular meteor shower is happening over Canada this week

Expect to see about 80 meteors per hour, but there could be as many as 200.

Meteor showers usually occur when particles of comet debris enter our atmosphere and burn up, appearing as shooting stars.

For viewers in North America, the Quadrantids will peak at the wrong time relative to Earth's rotation. However, the peak will only last a few hours.

The Quadrantids are notoriously known as having a very short window for peak viewing.

The next meteor shower you'll see is called the Quadrantids, and it's going to peak in the night sky. The Quadrantid meteor shower rains light over the northern hemisphere this week, particularly on January 3 and 4.

Don't give up hope if you don't live in those areas.

Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib Tells Crowd "We Will Impeach the Motherf-er.'"
Ms Tlaib is one of the first two Muslim women voted into Congress and made Mr Trump's impeachment central to her campaign. The president commented on the news during a Rose Garden event at the White House where he took questions.

The Quadrantids get their name from Quadrantid Muralis, a constellation - no longer recognized as one - first spotted between Boötes and Draco in 1795.

The network has also listed the three "best practices" for watching meteor showers. This particular asteroid is 2003 EH1, which takes 5.52 years to orbit the sun once. And if you're lucky, you might be able to catch the result: colorful meteor showers that light up the night sky.

To get the best view of the meteor shower, NASA recommends finding a place well away from city or street lights. "In less than 30 minutes in the dark, your eyes will adapt and you will begin to see meteors".

On January 5 and 6, depending on where you live, a partial solar eclipse will be visible in China, in North and South Korea, in Japan, in Russian Federation, and over the North Pacific Ocean and the Aleutian Islands.

If you miss the meteor shower, you can check out the super blood wolf moon at the end of the month on the 21st.
