What are Falling Stars?

Falling stars are small solid bodies that move in space and at times enter the Earth’s atmosphere. These falling stars are known as meteors. Some meteors are very small while some may weigh in tonnes. They travel in any path. At time, they appear as a dense group of stars travelling in the sky. When these meteors enter the Earth’s atmosphere, they get heated up due to the friction of air. At times, they catch fire due to extreme heat and resemble a fiery train of light.

When the group of meteors comes in contact with the Earth’s atmospheric friction, they catch fire, and we observe a meteoric shower. Meteors can become visible as high as 120 kilometres above the Earth.
