May the 4th be with you

The morning of January 4th, not May the 4th :), looks like a very busy time for astro photography and observers.

1st we have the Quadrantids meteor shower which has a narrow peak at 08:00 UTC on the 4th so the early hours of the Monday could be ideal.

2nd is Comet Catalina in the same region of the sky, nice and high in the East and a very tempting target.

3rd for the die-hards at 07:00 looking South we have Jupiter, Mars, Moon, Venus and Saturn in a nice alignment.

Potentially a very interesting and busy night if the weather gods behave themselves
