 It's about one-two-thousand-five-hundredth as fast as a Meteor In other words, the speed of a Meteor is 2,500 times 1,100 yards per minute. (formally Meteoroid or meteorite, depending on the context; a.k.a. "shooting star", a.k.a. "falling star")Small meteoroids enter the Earth's atmosphere at speeds between 730,000 yards per minute and 4,700,000 yards per minute, depending on their size. The fireball effect, known as ablation, ceases once the atmosphere has slowed the meteoroid to a velocity of about 180,000 yards per minute. It's about one-six-thousandth as fast as a bolt of Lightning In other words, 1,100 yards per minute is 0.00017 times the speed of a bolt of Lightning, and the speed of a bolt of Lightning is 5,900 times that amount. (atmospheric electrical discharge)A bolt of lightning can travel at up to 6,400,000 yards per minute when arcing from the atmosphere to the Earth. An estimated 280 million lightning strikes strikes occur each year. It's about 0.00000006 times as fast as The Speed of Light In other words, 1,100 yards per minute is 0.0000000559186849190180 times the speed of The Speed of Light, and the speed of The Speed of Light is 17,883,110.1169170 times that amount. (C) (in a vacuum)The speed of light (and all other electromagnetic radiation) in a perfect vacuum is known as "c" and measures 19,671,421,128.6090 yards per minute, per the formal definition of the meter. While visible light travels close to this speed in air, it slows to 13,114,280,752.6250 yards per minute when passing through the glass of a typical window.
