When a meteor enters the Earth's atmosphere, a bright streak of light is seen because of the heat generation . This heat generation is caused by friction between the air molecules in the atmosphere and the meteor.
It is a meteor in the sky, and a meteorite when (if) it lands. The bright light is mainly the ablation of hot material from the meteor.
The meteroid is burning up, like you said, so the light behind it is just the material of the meteoroid burning.
Arizona, USA.The most famous well known Meteor Crater is in northern Arizona in the USA.
i don't think it does because on the mohs hardness scale its a 8-9 that's a lot considering diamond is a 10 and is the hardest known thing.

The most common such oxide is titanium dioxide, also known as the mineral rutile.
To tell the difference between pyrite and real gold, you can check the color and shape of the ore. Gold and pyrite have a yellowish color but pyrite has a pale and brassy color compared to gold. Pyrites are shaped more like crystals while gold tends to form as a nugget. Another difference between the two is that gold can be scratched with a pocketknife while pyrite cannot be scratched. You also can use the malleability and odor tests.
They are called meteors. The particle making the bright streak of light that are known as a meteor, is a meteoroid. When it lands on the ground it is called a meteorite.
A meteoroid enters the atmosphere and becomes a meteor. As it burns up it does cause a long bright streak in the sky. The duration and intensity of this bright streak depends on the size of the meteoroid. Larger ones burn brighter, and for longer.
glomerulonephritis, also known as BRIGHT' disease, is a type of kidney disease caused by inflammation of the glomeruli that causes red blood cells and proteins to leak into the urine
A meteor. Note, though, that "meteor" also has other meanings.
There are a number of med terms for Bright's but glomerulonephritis is the best one.
Different minerals have different colors, actually.
Glomerulonephritis, also known as Bright's disease.
There has been debate over which meteor strike was actually the largest. The largest known strike was actually the event that created the moon and which gave the earth it's rotation. This occurred during the early days of our solar system, but the largest known existing strike zone (Which is also believed to be the strike that killed the dinosaurs) is knows plainly as Meteor Crater. The meteor was named 'Meteor'.
