We experience "meteor showers" when the Earth passes through the orbit of an ancient comet. There are several of these throughout the year.

The "front end" of the Earth is the line of Sunrise. Just as you would see more bugs smashed on the front windshield of the car than on the back window, we see more meteors when we're on the "front" end of the Earth, from about 2AM until dawn.
