Don't miss meteor shower on Jan. 5 and kiss of two planets on Jan. 9

On January 5, earthlings will be able to enjoy a spectacular phenomenon known as meteor shower. The meteor shower will start at about 11 p.m. on January 5 and will last till daybreak. 

One will not need to have any special equipment to see the space extravaganza. It will be possible to enjoy the view of the quadrantids - particles of an extinct comet - with the naked eye.

Astronomers say that in clear weather it will be possible to see up to 200 meteors per hour.

On January 9, 2016, Saturn and Venus will showcase their closest conjunction since August 26, 2006. This phenomenon was dubbed as the kiss of two planets. 

On January 17, 2016, Catalina Comet will fly close to Earth - one will need only binoculars to see the comet in the sky.
