Sorry for the delay in posting folks. Consider this a late post of yesterday’s question :-)
What yearly phenomenon connects:
Cracked by everyone!
- Horace Parnell Tuttle and Ernst Tempel
- Constellation Leo
The connection: the Leonid meteor shower.
The shower is observed once every year. The earth passes through the wake of the Tempel-Tuttle comet, causing the shower. The shower appears to originate in the constellation Leo, hence named the Leonid shower.
