In line with the comet's return, every 33 years or so the Leonids give an outstanding display. The last big Leonid shower was in , where the number of meteors ranged from 40 per hour to an estimated peak of per second!
Accounts of the Leonid storms date back to AD. Each one is different, because at the return of the comet every 33 years or so, the encounter with Earth's orbit varies due to the gravitational effects of planets on the comet's orbit. This magnificent comet passed close by the Sun again on February 28, During a storm, Earth crosses the outer regimes of the dust trail of comet Tempel-Tuttle. When the meteoric matter hits the Earth's atmosphere, new molecules and solid particles are formed that are of interest to the origin of life, the interaction of Earth and Space, and the issue of ozone depletion.
More on the Science of the Leonid Storm History of the Leonid Storm in Modern Times Just before dawn on the night of November , , the skies over eastern North America were lit up by thousands of meteors appearing from the region of the constellation Leo. Many thousands of people saw the event. A scientist named Denison Olmsted gathered many accounts of the meteor storm, and, together with accounts of of an abnormal display of meteors seen in Europe and the Middle East the prior year, determined that the storm was caused by a discrete cloud of small particles orbiting the sun.
That night marked the beginning of modern meteor astronomy. A repeat of the Leonid storm ocurred on November , Shortly before this, a scientist named Hubert Newton identified Leonid showers as early as AD, and he specified a period of about 33 years. In Comet Temple-Tuttle was discovered, and after its orbit had been calculated, and that of the Leonid stream in , astronomers made the connection between the two.
The Leonids failed to produce a storm in It was discovered that the stream had been perturbed in intervening years by encounters with Jupiter and Saturn.
