PostSubject: Cyrillid meteor shower   Sun Jan 25, 2009 10:07 am

This shower was an unusual one-time event that occurred on the 9th February, 1913.
The event was unusual because the meteors did not radiate from a single point in the sky; which meant their orbital path was probably around the Earth, rather than the Sun.
Because of a lack of a radiant the shower is named after the feast day of St. Cyril of Alexandria, on which the event was observed.
