We have received so many amazing questions through our Dear Science campaign, including this one from Ben, age 7. Why do meteors sometimes burn up? Surprisingly, we can actually see meteors burning from right here on Earth. Keep watching to learn what special occurrence this is and how meteors end up here on Earth.
