Around 83 BC Comet Kiess (a long period comet) lay down a trail of dusty debris. 7 years
ago astronomers/meteor forecasters predicted the probability of Earth traveling through the trail of debris on the morning
of September 1, 2007. Here are pictures of the September 1, 2007 Aurigid Meteor Shower.

This picture shows another meteor. It was perpendicular to the radiant of the Aurigid's so it might have been just a rogue meteor. Anyway is was a bit odd as the trail was barely visible but it ended in a very bright flash at probably magnitude -3 intensity. Heres the pic
