The Meteor Shower

What caused the meteor shower we watched on August 11 2012 (The Perseids Shower)?

"Comet Swift-Tuttle, whose debris creates the Perseids, is the largest object known to make repeated passes near Earth. Its nucleus is about 6 miles (9.7 kilometers) across, roughly equal to the object that wiped out the dinosaurs."

The Pereseid Showers are the bits of left over debris that falls off the Comet Swift- Tutle!
