    Yes, according to NASA there will be an asteroid a third of a mile across (named Bennu) that will slam into the Earth with an impact energy equivalent to the currently deployed arsenal of US nuclear ballistic missiles on September 22, 2135 (which happens to be a Thursday, if you need to check your schedule). Brace the impact my friend :)

Meteors

The first thing that comes to your mind about meteors is a falling star or a shooting star. Then, you wish for some good things you want to come true. They are called meteoroids when they're in space floating; meteors when they enter the atmosphere; and meteorites when they hit the earth. If meteors could do something aside from falling to earth, that would be to nag about being mistaken as a star. Who would ever like to have a mistake identity? They are streaks of lights but they are not stars.
