Meteors approaching Earth. Composite image representing meteors approaching and some passing the Earth in space. Bright meteors, often called fireballs, occur when particles of dust enter the atmosphere and burn up due to friction with the air. A group of meteors striking the Earth's atmosphere produce a meteor shower.
