Night of the Falling Stars
The falling stars of the November showers generally radiate in all directions from a point in the constellation Leo, and those of August from a point in the constellation Perseus. It is held by astronomers that myriad of these [often pea-sized] bodies are collected in several rings around the sun, around which they circulate like the larger planets, and that when the earth passes through or near one of these rings, her attraction causes them either to revolve around her as permanent satellites, or to be arrested by her atmosphere and, converted into heat, and light, they became visible to us, and perhaps fall to the ground as meteoric stones, or aërolites.
