Amazing meteor shower in China - level 2
The Lyrid meteor shower happens every year in late April. At this time of year, the earth passes through the dusty tail of a comet. Meteor showers happen when dust and other particles enter earth’s atmosphere.
Observers in a Chinese northeast province filmed the spectacle. They said that around 50 meteors were visible per hour in the sky at midnight.
Difficult words: particle (a little part of something), observer (a person who observes – watches something), spectacle (a show).
