The comet, which is due to pass near to the Earth on February 1, is now visible using the naked eye.
Scientists estimate that about 48.5 tons of meteoritic material falls to earth each day, with the majority vaporized by Earth's atmosphere.
The three asteroids range in size, between that of a Boeing-777 and of a 50-story building.
The asteroid, named 2015 RN35, will be traveling at speeds of 13,220 miles per hour as it flies past our planet.
Witnesses saw a meteorite crashing through the sky at around the same time that Dustin Procita's house caught fire, but experts told Newsweek they're skeptical.
With a few simple tricks, you can capture high quality and very impressive images of astronomical phenomena in the night sky.
The shooting star display from the debris of Halley's comet will peak on October 20 and 21.
The Draconids take place between October 6 and 10 and some years can produce up to 1,000 meteors per hour.
Astronomer Gianluca Masi told Newsweek that stargazers could twice as many meteors per hour by looking up on August 9 rather than August 11.
The peak of the meteor shower falls in mid-August, which unfortunately coincides with the full moon, which may make it harder to see the meteors.
The Eta Aquariids meteor shower is caused by debris left behind by the famous Halley's Comet entering and burning up in the Earth's atmosphere.
Astronomers have debated for years whether the object could have come from interstellar space—but a defense official has suggested it really did.
The Ursids may have peaked on Wednesday morning, but skywatchers have still got an opportunity to catch the meteor shower given the right conditions.
The shower is not always particularly active, but has historically produced some spectacular night-time meteor displays
The origin of the debris that produces the Orionids is the famous Halley's Comet, which is visible from Earth roughly every 75 years.
The Perseids occur every year when the Earth passes through streams of debris left behind by the comet Swift-Tuttle in its 133-year-long orbit around the sun.
The debris that produces the Perseids originates from the comet Swift-Tuttle, which is in a 133-year-long orbit around the sun.
The Perseid meteor showers will peak between August 11 and August 13, and they are best seen after midnight.
The moon will only be 13 percent full during tonight's Perseid meteor shower peak, providing ideal viewing conditions—assuming you have access to clear skies.
The much-anticipated night sky spectacle is due to peak this week—and getting away from light pollution offers the best chance to catch some meteors.
"It was stunning, beautiful, and scary all at the same time," one Twitter user wrote.
The Geminid meteor shower will reach peak activity on the night of December 13-14.
At maximum activity, you may be able to see between 10 and 15 Leonid meteors per hour.
The waning crescent moon will be only 15 percent full, which means viewing conditions should be favorable.
The moon will appear just 23 percent illuminated on the night of the peak, which could help visibility.
The moon will be about 23 percent full on the peak night, which means there will be relatively dark skies.
Amazed eyewitnesses managed to capture footage of the fireball as it blazed through the Earth's atmosphere.
On October 31, Uranus will be at its closest point to Earth.
