Here is a little video I put together of the 2012 Quadrantid Meteor Shower. Its in HD so click on the link ( ) and then change to 1080p HD for best quality.

January 2, 2012 - Quadrantid Meteor Fireball. I was pretty sure when I first saw it that this was indeed a Quadrantid Meteor and after looking closely at the radiant I am almost 100% sure it is indeed a Quadrantid Meteor.

January 3-4, 2012 - Several Quadrantid Meteors and one random meteor. I stayed out several hours overnight and saw plenty of meteors. Most were dim and fast which doesnt make for good meteor photography. I saw one bright meteor/fireball that fell down to the northern horizon. I was still able to catch several meteors by shooting almost directly at the radiant.

Here is a cropped and uncropped image of a Quadrantid Earthgrazer. It wasnt particularly bright but it flew across nearly the entire field of view of the fisheye lens and it went out of frame.

There are two meteors in this you can clearly see leaving out the field of view at the top and another likely fireball in the lower right in the trees.

Various other Quadrantid Meteors from the night:

I was even able to capture a couple as sunrise approached...the second meteor is not a Quadrantid.
