Unlike meteors (known as shooting stars), they do not burn up and fall apart as soon as they hit the Earth's atmosphere. That is, its “burning” in the atmosphere occurs for a longer duration. They are more frequent than it appears, so it doesn't cause such concern in the community, about 1 ton of space materials hit the earth daily, according to Othon Winter, researcher and professor of astronomy at Unesp (Universidade Estadual Paulista).

Very rarely meteorites reach the ground, at least in considerable sizes, because they disintegrate in the atmosphere. Its "burning" and disintegration in the atmosphere is due to the friction that occurs between the meteorite body along with the particles that make up our atmosphere, friction that overheats the material, causing the flames.

The mysterious fireball in the skies of Australia that is probably a meteorite is one that has iron in its composition due to the color of its flames. But meteorites can be either rocky or metallic, and they form from pieces of asteroids, comets, or even the "remains" of some planet.
