According to the authors of the videos, it was meteorites that fell and this event occurred in two cities of Ukraine – Odessa and Poltava.
It is very difficult to visually determine what the fallen objects are, because they appear in the sky for several seconds and disappear just as quickly. No one has been reported hurt or any buildings damaged as a result of falling unknown objects.
Meteorites are space rocks that are fragments of larger objects. Often these are fragments of asteroids, although meteorites can also be ejected from the Moon or Mars, as a result of the collision of these celestial bodies with the same asteroids.
Basically, meteorites, falling into the Earth's atmosphere, burn out, but some of them all but they can reach the surface.
Focus already wrote that scientists have calculated how many meteorites approximately fall to Earth every year. It turned out that more than 6 thousand meteorites of various sizes fall on the surface of the planet.
