Celebrate the start of the New Year with a spectacular meteor shower - here's how to watch

These cosmic fireworks, lighting up the night sky with their dazzling display of shooting stars, offer a breathtaking experience that reminds us of the beauty and wonder of the universe. 

Meteor showers occur when Earth passes through the debris left behind by comets or asteroids as they orbit the sun.  

As these particles enter Earth's atmosphere, they burn up, creating streaks of light that we see as shooting stars.

While meteor showers happen throughout the year, some are more prolific and impressive than others.  

One such event that marks the beginning of the year with celestial splendor is the Quadrantids meteor shower. 

The Quadrantids meteor shower typically peaks in early January, offering sky gazers a spectacular display of shooting stars.  

This makes it one of the most impressive meteor showers of the year, rivaling even the more famous Perseids and Geminids.
