Watch Up To 100 Meteors Per Hour In The First Meteor Shower Of 2020, Visible From Florida
Right now, we’re in the middle of a meteor shower and likely you didn’t even know it. But don’t worry, there is still plenty of time to catch the show in all its glory. The Quadrantids meteor shower takes place annually from the end of December through January, with a peak night that can yield up to 100 meteors per hour, depending on where you are in the country. While in Florida you might not get as great of a front-row seat as say, other states up north, you can still enjoy plenty of what this natural phenomenon has to offer, and here is how you can do it.
