The reason why light radiates from a meteor shower is because, as they move across the sky, the small rock particles glow as they burn up and get a tail-like effect. (NASA)

NASA says that Earth will pass through the debris trail of a broken comet called 73P/Schwassmann-Wachmann, or SW3, a comet, which broke into large fragments back in 1995.

Thankfully, Spitzer's observations published in 2009 indicates that at least some fragments are moving fast enough. And that's one of the reasons why astronomers are excited about the expected meteor shower.
