Since Comet Encke produces our Taurid meteor showers around avery August, and every December, could it be possible that enough mass torn from the main nucleus could produce the elements neede for a comet storm? All these people talk about all these crazy catastrophies, but if my question has merit, then this is worth calculating isn't it?

Someone said that on youtube, hmmm... I like that idea!

Or if it ripped into pieces, cause then I'd get to witness a crazy meteor storm! YAY! 200,000 mpm! Let's go Taurids, let's go! Encke break up, brake up!

Anyone have the Orbit path of Comet Encke?

There should be a "Our Solar System - All Known Comets"
