HOUSTON – This first meteor shower of the year is expected to happen early Wednesday morning.

The Quandrantids meteor shower will take place sometime between 3 a.m. and 5 a.m. and experts say it’s likely to be the best of the 2012 year.

If you don’t want to go outside for the event you can watch it via a live NASA web cam.

There is also a NASA app for the event.     

You can see photos from last year's Quandrantids meteor shower on nationalgeographic.com.
