347.90 yards per hour is about one-five-hundred-thousandth as fast as a Meteor.
In other words, it's 0.00000210 times the speed of a Meteor, and the speed of a Meteor is 480,000 times that amount.
(formally Meteoroid or meteorite, depending on the context; a.k.a. "shooting star", a.k.a. "falling star")
Small meteoroids enter the Earth's atmosphere at speeds between 44,000,000 yards per hour and 280,000,000 yards per hour, depending on their size. The fireball effect, known as ablation, ceases once the atmosphere has slowed the meteoroid to a velocity of about 11,000,000 yards per hour.
