According to Justino, a meteorite is a luminous phenomenon that results from the entry of any solid body into the Earth’s atmosphere. They are usually caused by meteorites, which are rocks up to one meter high.

– If it exceeds a meter, it is called asteroids. He concludes that meteorites are rocks that eventually escape the heat generated by entering the atmosphere, and end up reaching Earth.
