October 30, 2010 #101 - A Procession of Meteors on February 9, 1913

While reading through the 1922 "Popular Astronomy Vol. XXX"  I was intrigued by this article, written by William H. Pickering. This is the first time I've read about a train of meteors. I have plotted the path on a map to help me visualize the path. All I can say is this had to be quite spectacular.

There was at least a second follow up article by Pickering but I have not been able to find it. Vol. XXX is the last Popular Astronomy that was in the archives.
