Best Answer

Meteors are objects that fly into earth's atmosphere and burn; sometimes they burn up completely and sometimes they land on the ground (or water). The Moon does not and hopefully never will hit the earth's atmosphere. The Moon is a satellite of Earth; that is to say it orbits around the Earth. Meteors are not satellites; they just fly in from wherever.
