AMS Meteor Shower FAQ (3261 words)
Meteor showers are usually named for the constellation in which their radiant lies at the time of shower maximum.
Meteor storms are generally caused by young meteor streams, in which the majority of the streams' mass is still concentrated along that portion of the orbit occupied by the parent comet.
Meteor storms occur when the Earth crosses the orbit of the meteor stream, at the same time that the main mass of the young meteor stream is crossing the orbit of the Earth.
