- Meteors are also known as shooting stars because they look like stars to the human eye
- No one knows for sure where the tradition of making a wish upon a star comes from. Though some believe it was the ancient Greeks who believed the stars were being thrown down by the gods before something was about to happen so they would wish for that something to be good.
- The 'shooting stars' are caused by specks of rock or ice, some no bigger than grains of rice.
- Meteors travel at 150,000 miles per hour before burning up in the earth's atmosphere
