one way to do it is to make the front end of your spacehip or meteor a particle emitter and fine tune the particles until it looks right.

another way is to model the heatwave and do the trick with shaders.

i would go with the dynamics method simply because it gives more control and because when it comes to shading tricks i suck ;)

hope that helps


ps:check www.gnomon3d.com , for a web tutorial on how to emit particles from the surface. it might help
