Space rocks will often disintegrate before reaching the ground, but if they hit Earth, they are classified as meteorites.

Sometimes the disintegration process can seem like an explosion.

“Usually it burns up in the upper atmosphere,” said the professor, adding that “it should be considered as a more specific version of the phenomenon known as a shooting star among people and which is often experienced during periods of meteor showers. “.

The Perseid meteor shower, which occurs every year through July and August, sees up to 50 meteors per hour shoot through the sky at 133,200 mph, with the vast majority never reaching Earth.

Rain occurs when Earth crosses debris left by Comet Swift-Tuttle.

The alien glow surrounding the Izimir object is likely reduced to the amount of nickel in the rock.

About 90% of meteors do not contain metal, but some are made entirely or partially of iron and nickel.

It should be noted that the sighting occurred as the region of Turkey was fighting more than 100 fierce forest fires.
