We will hike up to the Bernal Heights for the secret view of San Francisco and enjoy a special UD surprise as we arrive to our spot!

From North entrance at Folsom and Bernal Heights Blvd, we will climb up for the sweeping 360° views! On the top of the hill, we enjoy the evening with meteor showers!

The hike itself is steep but very short (about 1 mile). 
Quadrantids Meteor Shower - Astrocal

Quadrantids:

Next period of activity: December 27th, 2020 to January 10th, 2021

The Quadrantids have the potential to be the strongest shower of the year but usually fall short due to the short length of maximum activity (6 hours) and the poor weather experienced during early January. The average hourly rates one can expect under dark skies is 25. These meteors usually lack persistent trains but often produce bright fireballs. Due to the high northerly declination (celestial latitude) these meteors are not well seen from the southern hemisphere.

Shower details - Radiant: 15:18 +49.5° - ZHR: 120 - Velocity: 26 miles/sec (medium - 42.2km/sec) - Parent Object: 2003 EH (Asteroid)

Next Peak - The Quadrantids will next peak on the Jan 2-3, 2021 night. On this night, the moon will be 84% full.
