Meteorites are pieces of rock from Space that land on Earth. They can originate from the impacts of Asteroids or Comets. When Meteors come into contact with Earth's atmosphere they begin to heat up and give out light, this is what you see when looking at a shooting star.
A meteorite is what's left after the meteor has landed on Earth, presuming it survives impact.
