Meteor showers are named for the region of the sky from which most of the meteors appear to radiate even though they can be seen anywhere in the sky.
Some showers are named for a star; the Delta Aquarids at the end of July seem to radiate from a region of the sky near the star Delta Aquarii.

The "shooting stars" or meteors we see throughout the year are a tiny fraction of the myriad streams of comet dust in space.

 "August's Shower of Stars -- skw9608
The best known meteor shower of the year, the Perseid shower, is predicted to reach its traditional peak about 8 a.m.
Consequently Earth is colliding head-on with most of the pebbles and small ice particles that are vaporized by the friction of our atmosphere as they dissipate their energy of motion and become " shooting stars." This year's peak of the Perseids takes place at 8 a.m.
Some significant enhancements of the rate of meteors -- brief bursts -- were observed from 1991 through 1994 as a consequence of Comet Swift-Tuttle's passage into the inner part of the solar system in 1992.

Danny, who would go on to be one of the top television stars of the 1950s with his show Make Room for Daddy, thought the time was ripe for Memphis to show its support.
Danny’s humble prayer seemed to have been heard and kept the storm at bay for the entire show, finally unleashing a torrent of rain only as the crowd was heading back to the parking lot.
The shows continued until the final Shower of Stars in 1977, but the support of Hollywood continued to thrive through telethons and the annual Hollywood Gala that was organized by Danny’s wife, Rose Marie Thomas.
