    Any help would be nice.

    Is there anyone who knows EXACTLY how meteors are tracked in space, what equipment is used, and how many people it takes? Is it possible for meteors to travel into our atmosphere without us knowing or can we always foresee meteor impact? I don't expect anyone to write paragraphs and paragraphs, but if anyone knows a website where I can find out this information, I'd be eternally grateful. Thanks.

    Meteors are generally tracked in space with telescopes stationed all over the world, but they must be large in order to see them. If they are not  large enough we will miss them from time to time and fortunately these small ones usually burn up in the atmosphere before they reach the surface. Furthermore, earth is bombarded by thousands of meteors on a daily basis but they are so small practically all of them go unnoticed. Just google "meteors" and that should list several websites with that information.
