40th anniversary of the marking of Earth Day is to be celebrated on April 22 this year and it seems that the celebration could be followed by some ‘natural fireworks’ too.

Scientists expect to see the Lyrid meteor shower from April 16 to April 25. They claim that behavior of this meteor shower is pretty unpredictable. Lyrid shower is capable to ‘produce’ from 10 to 90 meteors per hour but some scientists claim that there are recordings which say that in 1803 this shower produced about 1000 meteors per hour.

If you are planning to see some meteors you should consider leaving urban areas because the amount of urban light could prevent you seeing meteors.
