A meteor procession occurs when an Earth-grazing meteor breaks apart, and the fragments travel across the sky in the same path. According to physicist Donald Olson, only a few occurrences are known, including:
- Great Meteor of August 18, 1783
- Meteor procession of July 20, 1860; Donald Olson believes this was the event referred to in the poem Year of Meteors, 1859-60, by Walt Whitman
- Meteor procession of December 21, 1876, Kansas, Missouri, Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, Pennsylvania.
- Meteor procession of February 9, 1913, a chain of slow, large meteors moving from northwest to southeast, is sighted over North America, particularly in Canada, North Atlantic and Tropical South Atlantic.
