Leonid meteor shower of 1833. Historical artwork of the spectacular Leonid meteor shower of 13th November 1833 seen over the Niagara Falls, North America. Leonid meteor showers occur annually for about 2 days around mid-November when the Earth crosses the orbit of debris produced by the comet Tempel-Tuttle. The Leonid meteors enter the atmosphere at speeds of about 72 kilometres per second. There are usually around 5-20 meteors each hour, except once in about every 33 years when thousands can be seen. This shower's three hour peak resulted in terror.
