It is known by the name of quadrant to one of the main annual meteor showers visible between January 1 and 4, with a maximum at night from January 3 to 4.
At the time of maximum frequency you can see one or more light traces per minute. This swarm takes the name of a constellation now non-existent, the Mural Quadrant (name of an ancient astronomical instrument).
