Here’s another Google Search Easter Egg for you. Type “meteorite” in the Google Search homepage, the Google app, or on the Chrome browser to see a meteorite animation pass by your screen and then land on the lower right portion. The impact also shakes the screen a bit to complete the experience.

The Easter Egg also works by typing in “Chicxulub” or “Chicxulub crater” in the search bar. Chicxulub refers to the phenomenon that marked one of the most catastrophic events in the earth’s history some 66 million years ago when an asteroid slammed into the sea just offshore of Mexico’s Yucatán Peninsula.

The impact triggered a sequence of events that led to some 75 percent of animal and plant species being extinct.

Several organizations shared about the Google Search Meteorite on social media including the European Space Agency and the Earth Shaker Philippines, a local youth-oriented science org.
