Meteors well known as shooting stars, are bits of interplanetary material falling through Earth’s atmosphere and heated to incandescence by friction. These objects are called meteoroids as they are hurtling through space, it becomes meteors for the few seconds they streak across the sky and create glowing trails. There are several meteors per hour can commonly be seen on any given night. Sometimes the number increases dramatically — these events are termed meteor showers. Some rarely occurs annually or at regular intervals as the Earth passes through the trail of dusty debris left by a most of the comets.
Meteor showers are usually named after a star or constellation that is close to where the meteors appear in the sky. Perhaps the most famous meteors are the Perseids, these type of comets are peak around August 12 every year. Every Perseid meteor is a tiny piece of the comet Swift–Tuttle that swings by the Sun for every 135 years. And other meteors showers and their associated comets are the Leonids (Tempel–Tuttle), the Aquarids and Orionids (Hal-ley), and the Taurids (Encke). Most comet dust in meteor showers burns up in the atmosphere before reaching the ground, some dust and debris are captured by high-altitude aircraft and analyzed in NASA laboratories.
Chunks and metal from asteroids and other planetary bodies that survive their journey through the atmosphere and fall to the ground are called meteorites. Most meteorites which found on Earth are pebble to fist size, but some are larger than a building. Early Earth experienced many large meteorite impacts that caused extensive destruction.
Meteorites may resemble the earth rocks, but they are usually have a “burned” exterior. These type of fusion crust is formed as the meteorites melted by friction as it passes through the atmosphere. Meteorites also fall on other solar system bodies. Mainly there are three major types of meteorites: the “irons,” the “stones,” and the “stony-irons.” Sometimes the majority of meteorites that fall to Earth are stony and most of the meteorites that are discovered long after they fall are “irons” — these heavy objects are easier to distinguish from Earth rocks than stony meteorites.
In the year 2007, OMICS GroupInternational which intends to disperse the information on these three critical extensions of science with the assistance of its open access Journals. OMICS Group International have over 3 million readers and the fame and success of the same can be attributed to the strong editorial board which contains over 30000 eminent personalities that ensuring a quick review and quality process. Initiating from the year 2010, The OMICS Group International Conferences are instrumental in giving a serious stage to the incredibly famous scientists, understudies, researchers, academicians, organizations, business visionaries and businesses through its 300 International Conferences and occasions yearly all through the globe to raise and examine the advancements in the field of OMICS Study. OMICS Group International Conferences are completely pressed with intriguing occasions, exercises and learning going with the quick entrepreneurial enthusiasm to make them genuine. They are multidimensional with synchronous movement situated Scientific Event, International Conferences and presentations where the identities from Sciences (Both unadulterated & connected), Pharmaceutical, Medical, Clinical, Engineering & Technology and Life Sciences accumulate with their procedures in discovering genuine answers for different basic issues around the globe.
