It is not a real star that falls on Earth during a shooting star - the real stars are much too big. It is a speck of dust, which glows in the atmosphere, and looks like a fast-moving star. Most of these meteorites will burn up in the atmosphere, and never reach Earth's surface.
Shooting stars can land in earth in years because it's traveling to earth like for example it can be traveling right now it takes time for a shooting star to land in earth.
No. If a star (besides the Sun) ever came within hundreds of millions of miles of Earth, we would all be in a lot of trouble. A "shooting start" may occasionally hit our planet, but shooting stars are really meteorites, not stars.
No, a "shooting star" is a meteor. When the object hits the Earth (IF it survives the passage through the atmosphere) THEN it is called a meteorite.
you can see a shooting star anywhere the world has equal sides so we should all see a shooting star once in out lifetime even the earth is a shooting star but we can not feel the speed because the gravity is so strong
Seeing a shooting star means nothing to you, but in ancient times, people wrongly consider that shooting stars brings disasters to Earth.
The Sun is the nearest star but it takes 2 hours to reach the earth. Correct answer is 8.5 minutes for light from the sun to reach the earth.
No one really knows what the scent of a shooting star. Some people say that it is a slight burning scent since they can reach 4,000 degrees celsius.
If blackholes reach the earth the earth will destroy. Blackhole are to large it can eat star easily.
No. Shooting stars are meteors, which are significantly smaller than the sun. The Sun itself, is a star. Stars are really "suns" themselves.
A shooting that reaches the surface of the Earth would be a meteorite.
From what i have learned is when a shooting star falls to eatrh is when the star gets too close to earth the gravity pulls it and a what you call a star which is a metor on fire falls to earth and its suppose to be good luck. Hope I could help. :)
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.
The "shooting star" part, the streak of light through the atmosphere, is a "meteor". Once it hits the Earth, it is called a "meteorite".
The light takes about 640 years to reach Earth, as Betelgeuse (a red supergiant star) is about 640 light years from Earth.
A shooting star is made up of rocks then they go around a planet to get more speed then they go and crash on the earth or rome around it; a comet
Light travels at a constant speed. Therefore the farther away a star is, the longer it takes for light to reach us.
Yes. Meteors can be seen from any location on Earth.
we know that the star that earth orbits is the sun the sun is the biggest star ever
The light from a star 5000 light-years away will reach the Earth 5000 years after the light leaves the star.But the star itself will never reach the Earth. Stars do not, in general, collide with each other - or at least, do not do so very often.
The sun is the closest star to Earth. It takes 8 minutes and 19 seconds for light to reach Earth. The closest star outside of our solar system is Proxima Centauri. Light from Proxima Centauri takes roughly 4.24 years to reach Earth.
