Just a few days after a 7.0-magnitude earthquake shook Japan, killing dozens, Ecuador was hit with a a 7.8-magnitude quake, which killed hundreds. The town of Pedernales is currently in disaster mode.
While astronomers don't ever predict meteors to rain down on us this precise time of year (the Lyrids aren't expected until April 22nd), maybe they ought to add a new shower to the calendar. Because according to a Facebook post made by a local living in Guayaquil, Ecuador, a fireball exploded over the city the same night of the deadly earthquake. Other meteors were also spotted in other parts of the world, as well as a UFO in Japan, leading up to the deadly earthquakes. Not to mention - it was only a year ago this week that a 7.8-magnitue earthquake hit Nepal, claiming over 9,000 lives.
