As long as they are out in space, call them asteroids; once they get so near as to be visible streaks of light in the sky, call them meteors – enjoy the spectacle and, for good measure, take cover.http://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/ANALYSIS-On-Asteroid-Day-take-a-minute-to-look-skyward-407507/
