Call me a sado but I love this sort of stuff. Just letting you all know that 2 interesting things are going to happen in our skies on the nights of the 3rd/4th Jan.
1. On Monday night 3rd (tonight) we are having a Quadrantid meteor shower. From midnight onwards you will be able to see meteor showers. Up to 120 an hour!
2. Then on Tuesday morning 4th there is a partial eclipse of the sun. Rising from the south east around 08:10am you will be able to see it.
