The "HOURLY RATE" is not how much the prostitutes charge during "Celestrial Specials", but how many, on average, meteors you will see per hour. This varies per years, as the leonids a couple years ago had a couple per minute at it's peak.

And if you see one heading for you, don't let it hit you on the head.
