Hi Folks,
Although the current consensus regarding the Gao-Guenie fall holds that the second (Guenie) fall reported in April of 1960, one month after the Gao fall, probably didn't happen, I began to wonder what aspects of a meteoroid stream could possibly lead to a monthly interval in atmospheric injection. Has there been any speculation regarding lunar gravitational funneling of meteoroids to produce sequential falls at a monthly interval?
