All the time,

but the highest concentration of junk occures when we pass through the path of a comet. The big shows are called meteor showers and happen every year.

Some of the better-known meteor showers and their approximate dates are: Lyrids, Apr. 21; Perseids, Aug. 12; Orionids, Oct. 20; Taurids, Nov. 4; Leonids, Nov. 16; Geminids, Dec. 13.

How do meteors fall to earth?

The meteor showers are a trail of debris left behind when an astronomic body passes through the plane of the Earth. When the Earth intersects such a debris trail, the pieces of debris slow down as they encounter the atmosphere, and soon gravity takes control.They are called meteors when in the sky, and meteorite if they land.These debris trails are still drifting through space, and we encounter some of these each year. Thus the Leonids or the Perseids and so on, for their parent object left a trail that appears to originate from a particular part of the sky. [But did not - these trails are probably old solar system remnants.]


Why do meteors not burn up when they enter earths atmosphere?

Actually they do burn up when they pass through the earth's atmosphere.A meteoroid is a small rock or particle of debris in our solar system. A meteoroid that burns up as it passes through the Earth's atmosphere is known as a meteor.
