"A meteroid that hits earth's atmosphere becomes a meteor. When it comes to rest on the earth's surface it is then known as a meteorite."Actually, the portion of a meteor that hits the surface of the earth is called a meteorite. A meteor is the steak of light we see acrss the sky, which can be part of a comet, a meteoroid, an asteroid, or any other interplanetary debris we may see from earth. However, a meteor is the larger part that can be seen, but not the actual portion that hits the earth. (Source: Astonomy Today, 6th edition by Chassion & McMillan)
