- Actually, no, a meteor cannot. This infographic is about meteorite composition, not meteor.
A meteor is the "shooting star" which is a meteoroid (which can be very tiny or very large) that has entered Earth's atmosphere and is burning up. If the object does not completely burn up in the atmosphere, and a remnant of it strikes the Earth's surface, it is called a meteorite.(0 votes)
