During flawless conditions, anywhere from 60 to over 100 meteors per hour can be seen during the peak, they report.
Expected to peak in the early hour in the morning, you might be able to see about 10 to 20 Lyrid meteors an hour at the shower's peak.
Tonight's meteor shower will send bright fireballs from the asteroid designation 2003EH as Earth moves through the thickest part of the debris field. The best hours are late night and early predawn-and tonight is when the show is going to reach its peak. Those in Europe could wind up seeing the most meteors, which can range from 60 to over 100 during flawless conditions. The shower radiates between the Big Dipper and Boötes.
On Thursday afternoon, Malaysia's national space agency ANGKASA also shared information about the Quadrantids, which it said can be viewed in Malaysia with the naked eye in clear weather and in an area free from light. The shower will be short-lived and last around six hours, according to Sky and Telescope.
Compared to other meteor showers such as Geminids or Orionids, the Quadrantids can be harder to observe due to their small peak time.
What you'll see: You'll likely see 80 meteors per hour, if not more. Skies will likely be mainly to entirely clear in Michiana and surrounding parts of Indiana, Michigan and IL.
"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.

Neal Brown to leave Troy for West Virginia
West Virginia moved quickly to find its next coach after Dana Holgorsen's abrupt departure, naming Neal Brown coach on Saturday. Like Holgorsen, Brown comes from Air Raid roots in his coaching tree, but his teams at Troy were not of the Air Raid variety.
