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.
