Get ready, because a meteor shower is coming to a sky near you!

The annual Lyrid meteor shower is getting ready to grace our skies. Every April, the Lyrids appear and this year it looks like the meteor shower will fall on Earth Day. How convenient!

According to Patch.com, the shower might be visible on Tuesday, April 16, but will peak on Sunday, April 21 and Monday, April 22.

Lyrids are special, since they are known for being bright, leaving trails and can even peak at 10-20 meteors per hour. In addition, the meteor shower is also said to be unpredictable and can result in unexpected surges that might just produce up to 100 shooting stars per hour.

To see what you’re in store for, check out this cool video of the meteor shower. Keep your fingers crossed for clear skies!

What a great way to celebrate Earth Day. After you’re done giving back to the planet and your community, you can relax by watching the Lyrid meteor shower. Talk about a cosmic coincidence.

Why Vegetarianism Makes No Sense From A Moral Perspective

I don’t consider my years as a vegetarian as a stepping-stone or prerequisite to veganism


I hope I win the ‘Pig Farmers of Tomorrow’ contest I entered (I’m vegan)

I think I’ll likely have the most interest in pigs of anyone applying, anyway.


Hopefully Jon & Tracey Stewart use their new farm for vegan education

They’ve promised classes on caring for animals and sustainable agriculture, so vegan 101 would be a great place to start.
