According to the National Office of Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) these particles would make contact with Earth from Sunday night until Monday morning. Once the particles interact with the upper part of our planet’s atmosphere, they generate the lights we know as the Aurora Borealis.

Likewise, stargazers could see some shooting stars on Sunday night. This is after the peak of the Lyrids meteor shower that took place earlier this weekend.
