 It's about 0.00000005 times as fast as a Meteor In other words, 265.80 inches per hour is 0.000000045 times the speed of a Meteor, and the speed of a Meteor is 22,000,000 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 1,600,000,000 inches per hour and 10,000,000,000 inches per hour, depending on their size. The fireball effect, known as ablation, ceases once the atmosphere has slowed the meteoroid to a velocity of about 390,000,000 inches per hour. It's about 0.00000002 times as fast as a bolt of Lightning In other words, 265.80 inches per hour is 0.000000019 times the speed of a bolt of Lightning, and the speed of a bolt of Lightning is 53,000,000 times that amount. (atmospheric electrical discharge)A bolt of lightning can travel at up to 14,000,000,000 inches per hour when arcing from the atmosphere to the Earth. An estimated 280 million lightning strikes strikes occur each year. It's about 0.000000000007 times as fast as The Speed of Light In other words, 265.80 inches per hour is 0.0000000000062555498572549 times the speed of The Speed of Light, and the speed of The Speed of Light is 159,858,049,702.9 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 42,490,269,611,030 inches per hour, per the formal definition of the meter. While visible light travels close to this speed in air, it slows to 28,326,846,407,826 inches per hour when passing through the glass of a typical window.
