is a tektite a meteorite?

Tektites (from Greek tektos, molten) are natural glass objects, up to a few centimeters in size, which — according to most scientists — have been formed by the impact of large meteorites on Earth's surface, although a few researchers favor an origin from the Moon as volcanic ejecta. Tektites are the driest known minerals, with an average water content of 0.005%. This is very unusual, as most if not all of the craters where tektites may have formed were underwater before impact. Also, partially melted zircons have been discovered inside a handful of tektites. This suggests that the tektites were formed under phenomenal temperature and pressure.
