It’s funny that it says in the CNN piece, quoting “NASA”:
“Air friction heats the meteoroid so that it glows and creates a shining trail of gases and melted meteoroid particles,” it said. “People sometimes call the brightest meteors fireballs.”
Which, as I understand it, is a falsehood. There is probably heat from friction, but most of the heat is from compression owing to the supersonic speed of the object.
But that is not my area of expertise so I will leave it to others to expand on that.
Close call. It could have been this:
I like the way he calls it a “landing site”
If a branch fell off a tree in your yard, would it have a “landing site”?
