Meteors, when the Earth plows through debris, are left behind by a comet.

"So it's almost like a bug that hits the windshield where the ground is the vehicle," said cosmic Mike.

The Lyrid shower takes place around this time every year.

The American meteorological association said Tuesday's firefighting landed in the Atlantic Ocean in front of Bethany Beach, Delaware.

But if you missed it, don't worry. You get a chance again Sunday to Monday. This is when the meteor shower is expected to reach its peak.
