Meteor showers occur when the Earth crosses the orbit of a comet and small dust particles enter the Earth’s atmosphere [7]. The number of meteors observed in a meteor shower depends on the following: climatic conditions, the degree of light pollution in the observer neighborhood, the latitude of the observation location, etc. For this reason, observers from different locations, when looking at the same meteor shower, can see very different situations.
