The meteors are said to be the remnants of Phaethon, that is named after the relative of Helios.
Some see a connection to Lucifer, who as Phaethon did, fell in a blaze of light from heaven unto earth. The word lucifer, of course, had denoted Venus/Aphrodite, so Lucifer is the name of the Venus, when it is the morning star.
Well, interesting times are ahead of us. Enjoy the show!
