What are the characteristics of a meteor?
A meteor is a small, rocky or metallic body that travels through space. Most meteors are no bigger than a pebble, but they can be as large as a boulder. When a meteor enters Earth's atmosphere, it becomes a fireball and produces a streak of light in the sky, which is called a meteor shower.
A history of meteors
One of the oldest unsolved mysteries of the night sky concerns meteors. They have captivated the world for centuries with the power of their beauty, the excitement of their journeys, and the mystery of where they came from. Meteors and rocks and ice made up the majority of the early galaxies. These meteors were pushed away by solar radiation as the planets and suns formed, and they began to move into the orbits of the other planets. They frequently collided with the planets' surfaces as they flew by, producing spectacular fireballs in the night sky. Four billion years ago has been dated for some of these meteors. Meteoroidal matter, or these ancient rocks, are thought to have been formed by collisions with other space or lunar objects. Asteroids, comets, and other celestial bodies continue to hold on to the fragments of these events. The ancients held the belief that meteors were either sent by the gods or came from the supernatural. Egyptians believed that meteors were the souls of the dead ascending to the heavens, while Greeks believed that shooting stars were the gods' attempt to communicate with humans. Superstition and fascination with meteorites also persisted. Meteorites were thought to form when visions of the future were born in their glowing heat, which is why ancient cultures gave meteorites magical properties. They were thought to be powerful omens and signs from the heavens. Today, we are aware that meteors are, in fact, shards of asteroids, comets, and other space debris that travel through the atmosphere before breaking up into tiny pieces. Most of the time, the meteors explode in the atmosphere, but some of the larger fragments make it to Earth and strike us. For centuries, meteorites have been used for a variety of things, like making primitive tools, building materials, and medicines. They have also been used in spiritual and ritual ceremonies and given the reputation of possessing supernatural abilities. Meteorites have been worshiped, adorned with jewelry, and regarded as deities due to their belief in their extraordinary powers. In a variety of cultures, some meteors have also become symbols of national pride, heritage, and victory. For instance, the Iron Meteorite of Lovas was discovered in Hungary in 1610 during the Habsburg Monarchy. It is still revered as a national symbol today. One of the most stunning natural phenomena that can be observed and appreciated in the night sky are meteor showers. They occur on a regular basis and leave epic trails of light that will captivate viewers for centuries to come.
