they appear all the time when you can see the sky at night. its just hard to see them.
The mesosphere is where meteorites burn up. Most people call them shooting stars.
It is a meteorite.
whenever a meteor enters Earth's atmosphere. Meteor showers are good times to see them, otherwise their almost impossible to predict.
The correct name for a shooting star is a Meteorite. Before a meteorite enters the Earths atmosphere it is called a Meteoroid.
If you go outside on any clear night, in a place that's far enough from city lights so that when you look up and see the number of stars you say to yourself "Wow!", and ge…t comfortable on something where you're looking up when you relax and you don't have to strain any muscles to keep your eye on the sky, I'll say that you're sure to see at least one meteor ("shooting star") within 15-20 minutes. More if it's after midnight, and more if it happens to be on a date when there's a "meteor shower" in progress.
There isn't any particular location where meteors appear more than any other location. If you are looking for a good spot to go meteor hunting, you should find a flat area wit…hout tall hills or trees, and away from city lights. (Meteors happen just as often near cities as away from them, but you won't see them as well in the blaze of streetlights.)
Shooting stars are actually meteors or pieces of space junk. Thesematerials will burn up in the mesosphere layer of the atmosphere.
the stars are all in our galaxy and maybe beyond. they are not in our atmosphere and they are HUGE HUGE HUGE some r even bigger than the sun.
No one can give you a specific time. Shooting stars or meteors, are bits of debris that hit the atmosphere and burn. Timing is impossible, however, there are meteor showers wh…ere the probability is higher that they will occur.
You imply that shooting stars have names. They don't, and millions of them have entered the Earth's atmosphere. Nobody will have a count of how many there have been since the …Earth began.
Atmospheric friction causes a buildup of heat that vaporizes it.
In Planetary Science
A shooting star is nothing but a meteorite(pieces of meteors). When they enter the atmosphere, the fiction causes them to burn and till they reach the earth's surface they are… fully burned up.
No the dust that came off a comet or something in space would not be able to burn up it would fall to earth.
A shooting star doesn't occur on a layer of the atmosphere but in enters from the top layer of the atmosphere
