DID YOU GET THE FEELING RIDE TO SHOW THE FIRST FALLING STARS OF 2012 ? The 2012 begins with a Meteor-Star , the Tetartides ( Quadrantids ) , which will culminate on the night of Tuesday 3 January , and 4 January at dawn Wednesday . Unlike other "rain" who "fell" in 2011 and often became ... victims of the pollution-photos from the full moon , the first "falling stars" of the new year will not affect the moon to make the view of observers , provided , of course , be favourable local weather . The Tetartides ( Quadrantids ) lasting from 1 to 12 January and reaching the maximum frequency of falling meteors on 3-4 January . This rain meteors has gotten its name from a constellation Quadrans Muralis - or Epitichios Tetras ( was an ancient astronomical instrument ) - currently does not exist . The name took in 1795 by the French astronomer Jerome Lalande , but the group of stars that formed the vaporous constellation ( now located somewhere near the "Big Arktos" ( North Pole ) , has now fallen into oblivion , although the name is preserved in the Meteor . Astronomers are not yet sure who was the passing from the "neighborhood" of the Earth comet , which left behind the tail of dust and particulates , which are converted to Meteora ( falling stars ) each time the planet crosses the orbit . It is likely a comet ( 2003-EI1 ) commented first Chinese , Japanese and Korean astronomers , the year 1490 . As with other rain falling stars , Meteora are moving very rapidly , entering the Earth`s atmosphere and glow , which is why the comment is preferable with a naked eye , even with telescopes or binoculars . In the case of Tetartidon ( Quadrantids ) , which have short duration in the process of zenith ( approximately 2 hours ) and is generally distinguished from non-predictability and changing nature in their intensity ( thus it is easy to "lose it" ) , the observers do not need to look at a particular point in the sky , but just over the horizon . The frequency can be increased...
