So what is the history of this yearly meteor shower?
Between January 20 and 21, a rare super blood moon total lunar eclipse will be visible in North and South America, western areas in Europe and Africa, and a partial lunar eclipse will be visible in central and eastern Africa, Europe and Asia.
Also triggered from the debris from Halley's Comet, the Orionid meteor shower will take place October 2 to November 7, peaking at night on October 21-22. The shower will happen between the Big Dipper and Bootes constellations.
Similar to an eclipse, the event will be the first since 2016 and will not occur again for another thirteen years.
Compared to other meteor showers such as Geminids or Orionids, the Quadrantids can be harder to observe due to their small peak time.
