"A shooting star, a shooting star
is not a star at all.
A shooting star's a meteor
that's headed for a fall.
A shooting star, a meteor:
call it what you like.
The moment that it falls to earth
its called a meteorite."
(Meteorites burn up in the mesosphere layer.
How convenient that both words begin with M!)
