Andromede \An"dro*mede\, Andromed \An"dro*med\, n.] (Astron.) A meteor appearing to radiate from a point in the constellation Andromeda, -- whence the name. [1913 Webster] Note: A shower of these meteors takes place every year on November 27th or 28th. The Andromedes are also called Bielids, as they are connected with Biela's comet and move in its orbit.
