In the Sky This Month -January 2021- by Rick Wagner

02 Jan - Earth at perihelion - closest to the Sun 147,093,162km
03 Jan - Quadrantid meteor shower peaks at 10:30EST today; this is a very strong and sharply peaked shower so best viewing will be before dawn, though the waning gibbous Moon will prevent seeing the fainter meteors. Watch for bright fireballs in spite of the Moon!
06 Jan - Last quarter Moon
08 Jan - asteroid 137 Meliboea occults star TYC 0172-02312-1 at 01:29EST.
10 Jan - Mercury joins Jupiter and Saturn very low in the southwestern sky just after sunset.
