In the fall of 1831 Faraday attempted to determine just how an induced current was produced. His original experiment had involved a powerful electromagnet, created by the winding of the primary coil.

Meteors fall into the Earth's atmosphere all the time... tons of them every year. But when the Earth passes through the debris left behind by a comet, then you get lots of meteors at once.... a shower.

During the fall of 1995, the comet had a huge outburst in activity and shortly afterwards four separate nuclei were identified and labeled "A", "B", "C", and "D", with "C" being the largest and the presumed principal remnant of the original nucleus.
