It’s a bird, it’s a plane, no it’s a meteor!
Many people in eastern Newfoundland on Sunday
night saw a bright light in the sky around 8:30 pm.
A meteor is a meteoroid – or a particle broken
off an asteroid or comet orbiting the Sun – that burns up as it enters the
Earth's atmosphere, creating the effect of a "shooting star".
Meteoroids that reach the Earth's surface without
disintegrating are called meteorites. In this case it is not believed that this
meteor reached the Earth’s surface.
