This photograph shows one of the stunning Quadrantids from the Jan 3, 2009 shower/storm. Tonight was an awesome spectacle, showering us with meteors faster than we could count them. This was easily one of the finest showers we've ever seen, rivaling even the Gemenids of 2001. Photo Credit: j.reynolds, j.mcnabb, c.mcnabb
