Default friction burn

So I am trying to make a friction burn effect as a meteor enters the atmosphere but I can't figure out quite how to approach it. I have tried animating a texture on it and also tried some particle effects as well but I just can't seem to get the effect of the meteor penetrating the atmosphere.

Any ideas?

There is a meteor and a fire ball in your visor, just open one of those in a new scen to see how they have done it(you can open in the scene your in but you can play about a bit in a empty scene).............dave

Edit:you might have to key frame a little to get them to work right

Yeah, I was aware of the visor and all the presets but they weren't quite the kind of effect I wanted. I need to get a close up on the meteor and it has to look amazing close up.

This is kind of more along the lines of what I want:
