'I keep hearing about the Leonids. What are they?'

- There are other meteor streams, like the Perseids in August. So what's so special about the Leonids?

- I thought that the 'storm' was predicted for 1998. Last year, nothing much happened, except that the maximum occurred one night before the prediction. What was going on?

- So how come that this was not predicted?

- Why are you particularly interested in the Leonids?

- Won't your monitoring also be useful in assessing any risk to spacecraft?

'But why are comets interesting.' .'

What will you do with the data that you collect.
