(boh -lÿd) A brilliant meteor that appears to explode, i.e. a detonating fireball. The brighter ones are caused by ablating meteorites that subsequently fall to Earth. About 5000 bolides occur in the Earth's atmosphere each year.

Bolide

 

a bright meteor with pronounced angular dimensions. The most brilliant bolides may be visible even in daylight; at night, the mantle and the tail are visible. Bolides leave a trail of ionizing gases and dust. The flight of a bolide may be accompanied by acoustic phenomena and sometimes terminates in the fall of a meteorite.
