So why do astronomers always compare the size of meteors to Volkswagen bugs?
It’s part of the english solid volumn measuring system:
Bread Box = 346 Tennis Balls
Bowling Ball = 2.2 bread boxes
Volkswagen bug = 2560 bowling balls
Football field (yes it’s volumn, it’s the english system) = 1340 Volkswage bugs
Texas = 1,253,342 Foot ball fields
China = 19,430 Texases
“Your Mom” = 36,231 Chinas
And a Your Mom is defined as the exact distance traveled by light in a “little bit”.
