    Eastern North America and Western Europe have the best view. Its called the Quadrantid shower.
    If you are in North America look towards the North Eastern side and might see some. Pretty cool, I've seen some already!

    Just a friendly advisory, happy stargazing! ^_^

    Btw, this is early morning hours 3am until dawn...

    I would love to see the meteor shower, but I am on the West Coast of the US.

    I got myself up at 2am to meteor watch and suffered supreme disappointment, the sky was overcast. I LOVE meteor showers, and now that I live in the middle of nowhere, it is perfect for watching them since there is no light pollution in the sky.

    It was too overcast here to see anything. I finally went to sleep around 3:00 without seeing a single one.
    And of course today there is not a cloud in the sky.
