Hypervelocity Stars- If you've ever gazed at the night sky, you've probably wished upon a shooting star (which are really meteors). But shooting stars do exist, and they're as rare as one in 100 million. In 2005, astronomers discovered the first "hypervelocity" star careening out of a galaxy at nearly 530 miles per second (10 times faster than ordinary star movement).

What is commonly called "falling stars" are meteors or meteorites that are small pieces of rock and debris running in the solar system; if one pass close to the Earth the gravity force attracts it toward the land. And when it enters the atmosphere the velocity and the friction sets in fire the whole or part of it...then we see if falling brilliantly and people call a "falling star"...Several times of the year the Earth passes close to a region of space where there are many of these meteors.
