we pass thru certain remnants of meteor showers all the time. - which if you didnt know are infact the actual tail of the comet , since a comet tail
can be quite dispersed in space due to solar wind etc.
Say for instance if we had a recent meteor show- say the taurans 7 months ago - we may hit a dense clump of matter this week by pure chance.
Thats the "dude down the pub version anyway"
