The Quandratids Meteor shower and the constellatin Bootes

Bootes and the Quadrantids Meteor shower

Here is the constellation Bootes

It is from this constellation that the Quadrantids originate from . This meteor shower can be very sharp and focused. It typically lasts only three nights from Jan 2 thru Jan 4 and it can reach peaks of up to 120 shooting stars per hour. I have a complete listing of all the major meteor showers for the year here.
