Signal

  1. If we'd been hit by a meteor, we'd be dead by now." Haise is having trouble talking to CapCom; the signal is weak.

Complete

  1. Meteor shower s should be predictable, but the meteor s are cometary debris and so require calculations of orbits which are currently impossible to complete.

Absence

  1. Meteor strikes are a particular concern in the absence of any external atmosphere in which they would burn up before reaching the surface. (Web site)

Dust

  1. Meteor A small particle of rock or dust that burns away in the Earth's atmosphere. (Web site)
  2. When Earth passes through the band of dust, the dust and bits of rock burn up in the atmosphere, creating a meteor shower.
  3. Moonlight scattered from air molecules and aerosols (e.g., water droplets, dust and pollution) makes the air glow and interferes with meteor watching.

Trail

  1. Meteor Train: A trail of ionized dust and gas that remains along the path of a meteor.
  2. A train is a trail of glowing ions left behind a large meteor as it falls through the atmosphere. (Web site)

Meteors

  1. The area in the sky where during a meteor shower the meteors appear to radiate from. (Web site)
  2. Meteor Shower: A shower of meteors occurs when Earth's orbit intersects the orbit of a meteor stream.
