Hi Jeff and all,

Keep in mind that meteor showers and bright meteors and bolides that produce
meteorites are two different animals. We don't have any evidence yet for a meteor
shower producing a meteorite. Meteor Showers are produced when the Earth passes
through the stream of a comets orbit and producing the shower from the fine particles
tailing the comet. Meteor falls (that produce meteorites) are produced when when
material intersects the Earth's orbit from the asteroid belt from perpetration from
Jupiter etc. and falls. Yes they are call meteors but they originate from two
different sources.
