comment How accurate are rederings of something entering Earth's atmosphere?
@user6784 A brief reaction tailing off at a very high rate is exactly what I was suggesting, and had read about; not a run-away nuclear explosion. However, upon further review, I think you are right. Even a brief, localized, single point of fussion is more of a theoretical possibility than a regularly observed phenomenon. I have adjusted my answer accordingly.

comment Is it accurate to compare comets to clouds and rain?
@DrZ214 That's the idea, basically. Although I'm sure there is no one all-encompassing explanation, I'm wondering if this could be a significant part of the picture.

comment Why does the darkening of the Moon go from left-to-right during an eclipse?
Of course, in Australia, that shadow moves from "right" to "left" because they are standing on the "bottom" side of the Earth "upside-down".

comment earth is spherical , does it mean the ground on earth is like a ball?
How is the relative direction of "down" relevant to the shape of the Earth? This seems like an entirely separate question.

comment Is there an element of chance/chaos in stellar evolution?
@zibadawatimmy Yes, I would say those are good examples of trivial by any definition. Even if your question was "Is this likely to ever happen anywhere in the known universe?" the answer is still no with a trivial degree of uncertainty. Trivial means information that is of little importance or value.
