boarded air planes to get above thick clouds for a glimpse of the aerial fire works and Harvard astronomers in an aerial planetarium re ported seeing meteors at the rate of about 17 per minute The display resulted as the earth came within 131000 miles of the spot in space through which the comet passed 8 days ago The meteors were shed by the comet and formed part of its tail Those seen on the earth were those caught by the earths gravi tational pull and consumed for the most part as they plunged through the earths air shell the friction between the solid matter and the air causing the
