They move at variable rates, but are zooming in at hundreds of thousands of miles per hour as they approach the Earth. For a few examples, one of the specks of dust that make up the Leonids travels at 160,000 miles per hour, while the Perseid meteor showers speed along at about 140,000 mph.
Shooting stars (or meteorites) move at a rate of about 7-45 miles per second or 25,200-162,000 miles per hour.
