A father and son gazing up at the ISS spotted an object much higher than it zoom by. Fortunately, the son submitted the account to MUFON:
My father and I were observing the ISS in our backyard when about a few minutes in I noticed an object similar to the ISS but much further up approaching from the south. I pointed it out to my father and we both agreed it was a stable white light like the ISS and nothing like an airplane or other flying vehicles in our area. Since we live in a heavy air traffic area we could easily distinguish the differences by comparing it to the planes in the sky at that time.
Could this have been a meteor? The night before this sighting, some pretty crazy fireballs were spotted over the Northeast (according to AMSMeteors.org), with witnesses describing it has the brightest they'd ever seen. One lucky witness wrote: "Wife witnessed the event and cars in front of me put on breaks"
Or could this be related to the mass sightings of a peculiar star-like object that is... not really a star at all? What say you, Texans? Share your ideas in the comments or on the Facebook page.
