Dico S.F. – Meteorite

A meteorite designates a small celestial body which reaches the Earth surface.

To properly speak about meteorite, its size must be under fifty meters (beyond that, we speak about asteroid). The luminous trail leaved behind by a meteorite during its atmosphere crossing is called “meteor” or “falling star”.

Matching words: Asteroid, Comet, Planet, Planetoid
