 It's about 0.0000008 times as fast as a Meteor In other words, 185 furlongs per fortnight is 0.00000073 times the speed of a Meteor, and the speed of a Meteor is 1,400,000 times that amount. (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 67,000,000 furlongs per fortnight and 430,000,000 furlongs per fortnight, depending on their size. The fireball effect, known as ablation, ceases once the atmosphere has slowed the meteoroid to a velocity of about 17,000,000 furlongs per fortnight. It's about 0.0000003 times as fast as a bolt of Lightning In other words, 185 furlongs per fortnight is 0.00000031 times the speed of a bolt of Lightning, and the speed of a bolt of Lightning is 3,200,000 times that amount. (atmospheric electrical discharge)A bolt of lightning can travel at up to 580,000,000 furlongs per fortnight when arcing from the atmosphere to the Earth. An estimated 280 million lightning strikes strikes occur each year. It's about 0.0000000001 times as fast as The Speed of Light In other words, 185 furlongs per fortnight is 0.00000000010262853879016 times the speed of The Speed of Light, and the speed of The Speed of Light is 9,743,878,377.1896 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 1,802,617,499,780.10 furlongs per fortnight, per the formal definition of the meter. While visible light travels close to this speed in air, it slows to 1,201,744,999,873.40 furlongs per fortnight when passing through the glass of a typical window.
