Best Answer

If it is traveling through space, it is a meteoroid (a sand to boulder sized particle of debris in the Solar System). Meteoroids travel around the sun in a variety of orbits and at various velocities. The fastest ones move at about 26 miles per second (42 kilometers per second). The speed can depend on the distance from the Sun.

The visible path of a meteoroid that enters a planets atmosphere is called a meteor (or shooting star or falling star). The earth travels at about 18 miles per second (29 kilometers per second). Thus, when meteoroids meet the Earth's atmosphere head-on, the combined speed may reach about 44 miles per second (71 kilometers per second).

If a meteoroid reaches the ground, it is then called a meteorite. (and is thus on the ground motionless).

What is the difference of a meteor and a earth grazing meteor?

A meteor is a lump of rock in space. When one of these pieces of rock comes close to the earth it may burn up in the atmosphere as a shooting star. An earth grazing meteor is a meteor that has come close enough to our atmosphere that it starts to burn up, but will still pass us by as the angle is too shallow. It will go back out into space having been deflected by earths gravity.
