Meteors are little particles of sand and grit according to ABC 7 Chicago Meteorologist Mark McGinnis.

McGinnis says as it’s coming out of space into the upper part of the atmosphere it hits friction and it light’s up.

“That’s what you’re seeing, that’s the light that’s produced, and they happen all the time,” McGinnis said. “It’s just that during the day, obviously, we don’t see it, unless it’s much more significant.”
