If you were up past 3 a.m. and willing to brave sub-freezing temperatures Wednesday morning, you may have been one of the lucky people who saw the Quadrantids meteor shower light up the night sky.
The brief light show featured as many as 200 meteors racing across the sky between 2:30 and 5 a.m., with the shower peaking between 3 and 4 a.m. for much of the Northern Hemisphere.
Some people even managed to capture photos of the fleeting streaks of light:
