When very large fragments encounter Earth's atmosphere, they create a spectacular light show. These very bright and colorful shooting stars, brighter than magnitude 4, are referred to as Fireballs. 98% of a Fireballs mass disintegrates while traveling at speeds up to 70,000 mph; they usually stop burning well before reaching the Earth's surface.
