Sorry for the delay in posting folks. Consider this a late post of yesterday’s question :-)

What yearly phenomenon connects:

Cracked by everyone!

Answer:

  1. Horace Parnell Tuttle and Ernst Tempel
  2. 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.

    The Leonids, an annual meteor shower that is associated with the comet named Temple-Tuttle, named after the people in the pictures.The Leonids get their name from the location of their radiant in the constellation Leo: the meteors appear to radiate from that point in the sky.

    1) Horace Parnell Tuttle and Wilhelm Tempel
    2) Leo constellation.
    All the 3 are connected by Leonid meteor shower. The two discovered Comet Tempel-Tuttle independently which is the cause for Leonid meteor shower and the location of their radiant is in the constellation Leo.
