I have to create a mnemonic to help me remember the difference between meteors and meteorites. I know what they both are, but I am still unable to think of a mnemonic. A little help would be appreciated, thanks

    Tell us the difference, in your own words, and we will try to fill in with a memory aid.

    Meteors are rocks travelling through the atmosphere. Meteorites are rocks that hit Earth.

    I've heard this one before: "A meteor is a flash of light made by a falling meteorite"

    Big meteors create small meteorites.

    Thank you both :-)
