  • The meteors appear to radiate from that point in the sky
  • They peak is in the month of November
  • Earth moves through the meteoroid stream of particles left from the passages of a comet
  • The Leonids are a fast moving stream which encounter the path of Earth and impact at 72 km/s

Expanded info:

  • Annual Leonid shower may deposit 12 or 13 tons of particles across the entire planet
  • Meteoroids left by the comet are organized in trails in orbits similar to though different from that of the comet They are differentially disturbed by the planets, and to a lesser extent by radiation pressure from the sun, defined as the Poynting–Robertson effect, and the Yarkovsky effect
  • These trails of meteoroids cause meteor showers when Earth encounters them
