    R.S. McGregor's Oxford Hindi-English Dictionary defines उल्कापात (ulkāpāt) as "the falling of a meteor, or of a meteor shower."




    Examples of both uses, pulled from Google:


    1) डायनासोर उल्कापात के कारण ही विलुप्त हुए थे
    ḍāynāsār ulkāpāt ke kāraṇ hi vilupt hue the.

    2) जेमिनिड उल्कापात साल में समय-समय पर होने वाली ऐसी आकाशीय घटना है जो प्रमुखता से देखी जाती है।
    jeminiḍ ulkāpāt sāl meṃ samay-samay par hone vālī aisī ākāśīy ghaṭnā hai jo pramukhtā se dekhī jātī hai.
