(Newser) – Sky watchers can ring in the new year again with the return of the annual Quadrantid meteor shower this weekend. An almost full moon might reduce visibility, but those willing to give it a try should bundle up Saturday night and head out between midnight and dawn Sunday, reports Earth & Sky. The advice at is a bit more specific: It pegs the best time as between midnight and 2am local time and advises star-gazers to "watch the sky in the east, about half way up to the zenith."
