What better way to spend the first weekend of 2020 than under meteor showered skies?
On 4th – 5th January 2020, Malaysians will be able to experience the annual Quadrantids meteor shower! We’re in for a special treat this time as at its peak, the Quadrantids is expected to reveal up to 120 meteors per hour, as reported by timeanddate.com.
While meteor showers tend to stay at their peak for over a period of two days, the Quadrantids is unique because it only stays at its peak for a few hours. The peak time to witness this awesome occurrence is on 11:00pm of 4th January (Saturday) to the early hours of 5th January (Sunday). Which means you want to be at the perfect location to watch this beautiful phenomenon as it takes place.
Lucky for you, we’ve narrowed down a list of locations in which you’d be able to get a clear view of the magical sky:
- Pulau Redang, Johor
- Mersing, Johor
- Sekinchan, Selangor
- Kudat, Sabah
- Broga Hill
- Kuala Kubu Bharu, Selangor
- Kota Belud, Sabah
- Pantai Pasir Klebang, Melaka
- Kuala Selangor
- Pulau Tioman, Pahang
- Pulau Gem, Terengganu
- Tanjung Simpang Mengayau, Sabah
- Cameron Highlands, Pahang
- Pantai Malindo, Penang
- Kampung Teluk Pelanduk, Seremban
- Ulu Yam, Selangor
If this is your first time experiencing a meteor shower, you might want to take note of a few tips. Firstly, you want to find a secluded viewing spot, away from the city lights. External factors such as light pollution, weather and terrain might affect the visibility of the sky but don’t be discouraged! Meteor watching can be a waiting game.
Once you are at your prime location of choice, let your eyes adjust to the darkness for about 30 minutes. You should be able to experience the radiant, magical sky soon after that!
