Here's How to Catch the 2019 Lyrid Meteor Shower

By

The planet is celebrating Earth Day with a meteor shower that will peak on April 22. In fact, it seems like there's been a week-long Earth Day celebration. On Tuesday, April 16, thousands of people living on the East Coast saw what looked like a bright green meteor throttle itself across the sky and explode. 

Some even thought it was the beginning of the end of the world. Astronomer Kevin Conod, who works at the Newark Museum Dreyfuss Planetarium in New Jersey, states that what we actually saw was a piece of rock from an astroid. Was it related to the Lyrid meteor shower? Probably not, but still really rad nonetheless.
