Big Rocks Falling Out of the Sky

Warning, this is pretty loud.

The aftermath of the Tunguska event of 1908, believed to have been a huge meteor that exploded over central Siberia

The leftover remnants of the creation of the planets fall to earth daily.  Usually they are very small, but sometimes they are big chunks that make an impact.  The earth and the planets were formed out of rocks and dust crashing together, and that process continues.  Let's hope that we continue to stay out of the way.
