Nights Over Egypt (An Eye of the Storm Short)
After observing the comet for several weeks, an orbit was calculated. It was found that the orbit was of short period, In November that year, a Leonid storm was anticipated. The sheer number of meteors startled observers in Europe, who scrambled to count the numerous meteors and determine the radiant position. An orbit was calculated for the meteoroids assuming a period of 33 years, and the similarity with the comet orbit was discovered.
The return of was eagerly awaited. Paris scientists launched a balloon with the first meteor airborne astronomer Dorothea Klumpke. That year, many meteors crossed the sky, but the sharp main peak of past Leonid storms was not observed. The comet also did not show itself again. However, strong activity continued until , with rates increasing to storm conditions in In rates went up again, but a big storm was not observed. At the time, it was thought that the shower was lost because of a close encounter with Uranus prior to the return. Or, perhaps, the storm was simply missed by the more scientifically oriented observers because of bad weather.
Such is not uncommon in the northern hemisphere in the middle of November. Calculations would later reveal that this comet passed closer to the Earth's orbit 0. Some predicted the return of a storm over Europe. Instead, a tremendous storm of tens of thousands of Leonids fell for a short interval timed by skywatchers in the central and western United States on November 17th, This display probably rivaled the historic showers of and Within just two hours, observed rates increased from about 40 per hour to flurries of as much as 40 per second!
A rate of about , per hour was seen for about 20 minutes. Scott Murrell. Read more eye-witness accounts here. A strong spike of activity stands out above the daily variation of sporadic activity. Astronomer Peter Jenniskens was among the first to notice the high Leonid rates on November 18 that year, when the shower was as strong as the Perseids in August.
The outburst lasted a little over a day and was rich in bright meteors.
