The Lion’s Roar: Meteor Showers and More.

A meteor shower takes its name from the constellation in front of which the radiant (or center point) appears, and is caused by Earth passing through the trail left by comets as they speed through our system.

Tonight we meet the parent comets of the popular showers.

Mackinaw City, on I-75, is at the very tip of Michigan’s mitt, the last stop before crossing the Mackinac Bridge.
