Hello Martin,

Your wording is ambiguous. We all know that sunbeams emerging
from a break in clouds will _appear_ fan-shaped, when they are
in fact parallel.

Identically, a meteor shower will _appear_ to fan out as they
appraoch an observer, but that is the same optical illusion -
they are in fact travelling (roughly) parallel.

Therefore it is extremely unlikely that two members of a meteor
shower could end up travelling mutually at right angles. And for
those two paths to be able to converge and intersect (above a
simultaneous eathquake and UFO sighting) is astronomically,
ballistically, geometrically and statistically beyond belief.
