1. Comets, Meteors & Myth: New Evidence For Toppled Civilizations And Biblical Tale

"...and the seven judges of hell ... raised their torches, lighting the land with their livid flame. A stupor of despair went up to heaven when the god of the storm turned daylight into darkness, when he smashed the land like a cup." An account of the Deluge from the Epic of Gilgamesh, circa 2200 B.C. If you are fortunate enough to see the storm of shooting stars predicted for the Nov. 18 peak of the Leonid meteor shower, you'll be watching a similar but considerably less powerful version of events which some scientists say brought down the world's first civilizations. The root of both: debris from a disintegrating comet. Biblical stories, apocalyptic visions, ancient art and scientific data all seem to intersect at around 2350 B.C., when one or more catastrophic events wiped out several advanced societies in Europe, Asia and Africa.

June, 2000
All the photographs, finder charts, and orbit diagrams on these pages were created by me, Dale Ireland , using various software programs, including THE_SKY5 and RealSky from Software Bisque , Dance of the Planets from ARC , and Adobe Photoshop.
Detailed ephemerides used to create the charts and diagrams below were obtained from the IAU Minor Planet Center where they are developed. You can view current elements and ephemerides for comets recently discovered by visiting their site at:

March 4 1997, Comet Tempel-Tuttle was spotted "recovered" for the first time in over 30 years. It has a 33yr orbit around the Sun and debris from this comet causes the Leonid Meteor shower as the Earth crosses the comet's orbital path every November 17th. The comet will reach perihelion, it closest approach to the Sun on Feb 28 1998. The Leonid meteor shower may be spectacular as the Earth crosses the comet's orbit just months after it's passage, or possibly in the year 1999. This was the case in November 1966 when we had one of the greatest showers in the last 100 years.
