A meteor hitting the moon would affect life on Earth in a good way. By omission, the collision with the moon means the meteor doesn't get to strike the Earth --- and that is a very good thing.

A meteor hitting Earth is simply by chance. They fly around through space and every now and then, one might happen to crash into Earth.

Meteorites hitting the Earth.

If a meteor was coming directly at a satellite, it could cause destruction, which can affect Earth.

The air in front of it is about 2000 degrees Kelvin, but the ablation it causes is a great remover of heat energy AND a rocky meteor is good insulator ... so its insides could be as cold as space. So the temp of the meteorite could be almost anything.

NASA is planning for it.If possible humans will shoot down meteor and make it crash into pieces.

Well there could be a Meteor hitting the earth. that's what extincted the dinosaurs. maybe.. Natural Disasters such as volcanic eruptions, earthquakes, abrupt changes in the heating and cooling of Earth, glaciations, and meteors, can all cause extinction of animals. PS. i heard in 2029, there will be a comet hitting the earth

It could, but its not likely.

Comets and Asteroids can affect the Earth by ...A Asteroid hitting Earth and causing a crater and a Comet can cause excitement on Earth if they are spotted.

it could but scientists could be wrong and maybe they will be right

The impact hole left in the Earth or any planet would be a crater.

When a meteor hits the Earth it forms a crater.

An asteroid or meteor that would cause climatic change, about 1 in 600,000 to 1 in 10,000,000.

of course there always have and always will be humans on the moon some people even believe that we will have to leave this planet to go to the moon for safety because the earth can block a meteor from hitting the moon ==================================== As far as is known to the public, there have been no humans on the moon since the Apollo 17 mission in December, 1972. BTW -- the moon can also block a meteor from hitting the Earth.

it is called an Asteroid when it is in space and it is called a meteor when it enters earth atmosphere or a meteor could be called a shooting star

Most certainly yes. Thousands of meteors hit the earth every day. Yes. In a typical year there are between 18,000 and 80,000 meteorites of 10 grams or more, which strike earth.

dk meteor as in dino killing meteor

A meteor in space is called a meteor. When it reaches earth its a meteorite.

A meteor does not produce light, a shadow on the Earth is caused when the meteor blocks the Sun's rays. The meteor does this when it is placed in between the Sun and the Earth, this is called an eclipse.

Correction! Actually a meteor that impacts the Earth is called a meteorite

Another name for a meteor that is visible from Earth is Meteoroid.

Very high - damn one just did. Meteors hit the Earth almost every second. Very few manage to penetrate the Earths atmosphere and become meteorites.

This kind of meteor is called a meteorite.

A meteor will NEVER impact the Earth. The few that do impact Earth are called meteorites and pose no threat what so ever - bar maybe a broken window or a small depression on the ground. If hit by one, then it could be serious, but as for the Earth, it has survived bombardments so severe, that walking outside would be like you had walked into WWIII. The Earth is not affected by meteors. Like water off of a ducks back.

Probably, and depending on its size. Even though Neptune's atmosphere is quite cold, anything hitting it at orbital velocity should cause it to heat up to incandescence, and it could easily burn up. We don't know if Neptune even HAS a "surface", so it's possible that remnants of the meteor could sink into whatever it is that Neptune has in there. Neptune is so far away that no Earth-based telescope could hope to see a Neptunian meteor, but there is no reason to think it wouldn't happen.

no proof of what happened, but if it was a meteor, parts could have hit off onto the moon.
