Q. Are all meteorites fiery when they stroke the Earth?

A. Although meteorites shoot through the atmosphere in a blaze of fire and are thought to be very hot when they strike the earth, many are actually cold, reveals Collier’s. In fact, one completely covered with frost fell in Colby, Wisconsin on July 4, 1917.
