  1. Meteors

    or Shooting Stars are small bodies consisting of iron, stone, and certain other familiar elements which are scattered in immense numbers through planetary space; they revolve round the sun in clouds or in long strings, and when the earth gets close to them numbers are drawn down to its surface, friction with the atmosphere rendering them luminous and grinding them usually to fine dust; larger meteors are known as fireballs and aërolites, many of which have reached the earth; comets are masses of meteors.

Examples of meteors in a Sentence

  1. Bill Cooke:

    This is going to be an all or nothing event. If the debris from SW3 was traveling more than 220 miles per hour when it separated from the comet, we might see a nice meteor shower. If the debris had slower ejection speeds, then nothing will make it to Earth and there will be no meteors from this comet.

  2. Bonnie MacLachlan:

    The Greeks, and Babylonians before them, saw the upper sky as the home of the gods when meteors fell to Earth, instead of reasoning that there might be rocks up there, they felt that divinity must reside in the fallen meteorite and worshipped it.

  3. Mike Hankey:

    Bright moon phases are bad for meteor showers as they wash out the dimmer meteors, a full or almost full moon dominates one part of the sky, making that part undesirable for observing meteors. The full moon also lasts the entire night, leaving no hours of complete darkness, which is preferred.

  4. Bill Cooke:

    Most of us in North America would normally see 50 or 60 meteors per hour.

  5. Robert Lunsford:

    The radiant is expected to be a large area of the sky and not a pinpoint. So any slow meteor from this general area of the sky can be expected to be from SW3, you need not look directly overhead as meteors may appear in any portion of the sky. They are actually more likely to appear at lower elevations in the sky since at these elevations one is looking through a far thicker slice of the atmosphere that when looking straight upwards.
