Astronomical club “Canopus” - Varna
Abstract. This article discusses some basic concepts related to meteor astronomy, as well as the use of the correct terminology when working in Bulgarian. Due to the huge volume of topics, this is the first part of an upcoming series that examines only the most general principles in meteor science. The article can serve the public observatories and similar structures related to the teaching of amateur astronomy (due to the lack of such literature in Bulgarian), and meteor phenomena will continue to attract the attention of a wide range of people, giving them mostly a strong, emotional impact!
