On 27 May people of northern Turkey had spectacular light show. The videos uploaded in the social medias show a meteor streaking across the sky, before exploding in the air with a thunderous boom. Daily Sabah, a Turkish website reported that the ball of light was visible in several provinces at around 8:30 pm local time, including Artvin, Erzurum, Sivas, Tuncel and Ardahan. Though not confirmed the object was a meteor the Hurriyet reports that meteorologists have assessed it as what we’d expect from a “meteor shower”.
Also the behaviour is consistent with space rocks that enter the Earth’s atmosphere. Most meteors that reach our planet’s atmosphere don’t actually make it to the ground; not intact, at any rate. It is estimated that millions of meteors and micro meteors enter Earth’s atmosphere every day. Most of them are tiny, between sand-size and pea-size. They burn up before we even know they exist. We are able to spot only the larger ones.
When the rock falls through the sky, air pressure in front of it builds up. This causes high-pressure air to seep through minute pores and cracks in the object. causes high-pressure air to seep through minute pores and cracks in the object. Thus they explode several tens of metres in the air, raining smaller debris onto the ground below.
