>> Meteors can come in showers, sometimes when the Earth passes through the tail of a comet.
More properly, the "trail" of a comet, as in when Earth crosses a comet's orbital track, which is why we see 12-month repeat intervals of meteor showers. As a comet disintegrates, it leaves a ring of debris along its orbit that lasts for centuries.
Nice rational article -- devoid of common tabloid hyperbole.
