Meteors are not v

Answer :

Meteors are not visible during the daytime because


1. Meteors are smaller the comets, and their brightness is much less than the powerful rays of the sun.


2. When the earth's orbit crosses the path of a meteoroid, it falls through the earth's atmosphere. As it falls, it burns up as a result of the enormous heat generated. This makes a streak of light known as meteor or shooting star. Most of the meteors burn up fully before they reach the earth's lower atmosphere


Hence we can’t see meteors during the daytime.
