I was out much of the night and saw quite a few of the fast dim Quadrantids but not much else. I saw one marginal fireball drop down to the northern horizon. Earlier in the night I captured this nice Quadrantid Earthgrazer. It wasnt super bright but it left a faint trail visible along much of its path for around 15 minutes! I caught several other dimmer meteors mostly right near the radiant including one in the glowing light of the approaching sunrise. All of the images are viewable at: Canon T1i, F3.5, ISO 1600/3200, 8mm Fisheye & 18mm.
