Pieces of natural space debris — typically rocky shards of comets or asteroids — occasionally survive their journeys through Earth's atmosphere and strike the ground.

While large impacts are fairly rare, thousands of tiny pieces of space rock, called meteorites, hit the ground each year. Meteoroids are rocky remnants of a comet or asteroid that travel in outer space, but when these objects enter Earth's atmosphere, they are considered meteors. Most (between 90 and 95 percent) of these meteors completely burn up in the atmosphere, resulting in a bright streak that can be seen across the night sky

However, the majority of these events are unpredictable and go unnoticed, but from time to time it could be captured by witnesses.
