Occasional or sporadic meteors can be seen every clear night. A meteor is a type of light phenomenon that occurs when meteoroids (or smaller celestial bodies) heat up when they pass through the Earth’s atmosphere at high speed (up to 72 km / s). A meteor is a broader name for a celestial body that passes through the Earth’s atmosphere, including an accompanying phenomenon. The Balajinagar meteor is one of those space objects that fell to Earth.
