Meteorites

A meteor moving through the vacuum of space typically travels at speeds reaching tens of thousands of miles per hour. When the meteor hits the atmosphere, the air in front of it compresses incredibly quickly. When a gas is compressed, its temperature rises. This causes the meteor to heat up so much that it glows. The air burns the meteor until there is nothing left.
How Stuff Works, Meteors burn up when they hit the Earth’s atmosphere. Why doesn’t the space shuttle?, 2019

When those meteorites enter our atmosphere the heat generated on entry burns them into ashes. This was only known recently, however this was portrayed in the Quran 1400 years before it was discovered.

[Quran 52:44] Even if they were to see lumps of the sky falling down, they would say, “A mass of clouds.”

They would think that they are clouds because their ash looks like clouds.
