Asteroids, meteors and meteorites - Sketchplanations

Asteroid: Big rock flying through space

Meteor: A rock burning up as it enters the atmosphere. Also known as a shooting star.

Meteorite: Parts of a meteor that made it all the way to the ground. Look out!

It was a long time before I really knew the difference between these things.
