Quadrantids light up sky over Tenerife as meteor shower reaches peak

The Quadrantid meteor shower is expected to light up the sky over Teide Observatory, Tenerife, on Monday, January 3, as the event reaches its peak.

The meteor shower is known for its bright fireballs with glowing trails and colors that can persist longer than an average meteor streak.

Between 60 and 200 meteors per hour are expected to pass over a six-hour period, as the earth​travels through the densest part of the Quadrantid stream.

The cosmic spectacle occurs annually and usually peaks in early January. Quadrantid meteor shower live from the Teide Observatory (Instituto de Astrofísica de Canarias). Image shared by Sky-Live.TV / EELabs
