The biggest factor is, North America will be facing away from the shower during peak time.
However, despite the relatively lengthy period in which they occur, catching the peak-where up to 100 meteors shoot across the sky-can be tricky as it only lasts around six hours.
Tonight, the Quadrantids meteor shower will reach its peak for a few glorious hours.
The Quadrantids meteor showers have already been shooting across the skies since December 22, and will continue until January 17.
Nasa said the Quadrantids are "one of the best annual meteor showers".

"The name Quadrantids comes from the constellation Quadrans Muralis (Mural Quadrant), created by the French astronomer Jerome Lalande in 1795", wrote Bruce McClure on EarthSky.
The meteor shower radiates between the Big Dipper and Bootes. This particular asteroid is 2003 EH1, which takes 5.52 years to orbit the sun once.
So what is the history of this yearly meteor shower?
Stargazers in urban areas may have more luck spotting meteors if they travel to a place with a wide view of the sky and less light pollution, NASA explains.
The meteor shower is expected to be visible in the Northern Hemisphere, especially mid-northern and far-northern latitudes, if weather conditions allow. Avoiding light from cellphones and other sources will give people's eyes more time to adjust to the darkness and make the meteors easier to see.
If you miss the meteor shower, you can check out the super blood wolf moon at the end of the month on the 21st.
