What are shooting stars made up of?

    A shooting star is a meteor. When the meteor collides with the Earth’s atmosphere, as it burns in the atmosphere, it  heats up, begins to glow, and then burns down so we get the effect of what is commonly referred to as a shooting star. They are made of small chunks of rock and dust in space.

    Shooting stars are pretty much any sort of space debris, which is mostly some sort of rock particle drifting through space. When it enters our atmosphere, the speed of its descent causes it to ignite, and the shooting star is seen briefly for as long as the debris can fuel the fall.
