Look out for the Quadrantids

The first meteor shower of 2020 is just around the corner, with the Quadrantids (QUA) expected to peak on the morning of the 4th of January. This is a short-lived but often intense shower. The quoted hourly rate is about 120 but the first-quarter Moon will set around midnight and with the Moon up, a realistic rate is 20-30. Once the Moon sets it should improve.

    Good blog post. The things i would like to contribute is that computer memory needs to be purchased when your computer still can’t cope with that which you do with it. One can deploy two RAM boards containing 1GB each, for example, but not one of 1GB and one having 2GB. One should make sure the maker’s documentation for own PC to be certain what type of memory it can take.
