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.
