Are shooting stars really stars?

Shooting stars are actually pieces of burning rock called meteors. A meteor is formed when a piece of debris in the solar system, called a meteoroid, enters the Earth’s atmosphere. As the meteor rubs against the air in the Earth’s atmosphere, it gets hotter and hotter until it burns up in a streak of light.
