Next Month, Watch The Alaska Skies Light Up During One Of The Best Meteor Showers of The Year

The best meteor shower of the year is coming up in just a few short days! The Quadrantid meteor shower is the first large meteor shower of the year, with fireball meteors coming in 60-100 meteors per hour. The peak of this incredible show is just a few short hours that you don’t want to miss! With our many hours of darkness each winter, Alaska is primed for great viewing of this beautiful display.
