Night of your birth... The Leonids they were called. God how the stars did fall. I looked for blackness, holes in the heavens. - Cormac McCarthy
The meteorites that make up the shower known as the Leonids seem to emerge from the constellation Leo in the sky. In fact, this is an optical illusion: it is the Earth which moves through the trail of the comet. The meteorites are made of parts of the comet as parts of it are heated and detach as it passes Jupiter and nears the sun. Their rough but dazzling particles illuminate the Earth in the month of November, radiating with brilliance in the dark night sky. Set with an Australian Parti sapphire.
