Where do shooting stars come from?

They have nothing to do with the stars. A shooting star is another name for a meteor, a light phenomenon that occurs when a cosmic body enters the Earth’s atmosphere. This is cosmic dust, comet fragments and other small particles that burn in the earth’s atmosphere. Occasionally large fragments do not burn completely and reach the Earth — these are meteorites. Remember this folk saying: when you see a shooting star make a wish!
