Larger meteoroids cause bright flashes of light when they hit Earth's atmosphere

Larger meteoroids cause bright flashes of light when they hit Earth's atmosphere, such as this fireball caught during the Perseid meteor shower Aug. 12, 2006. The bulk of meteoric activity is much less showy: Some 10 to 40 tons of meteor dust enter our atmosphere every day. Image Credit: Courtesy of Pierre Martin
