AMSmeteors.org, Texas UFO Sightings, and even local news outlets saw many reports of a bright fireball over Central Texas on the 23rd, but maybe the Delta Aquarids? are giving us an early show, because there were reports of a meteor or meteor-like object the nights before and after as well.
As always, Texas UFO Sightings readers have a different take on this "meteor" - its silent nature, especially bright appearance, and movement gave them reason to report it as a UFO instead. Saying that, you're always welcome to report about any amazing thing you see in the sky - whether it's a cool cloud or meteor.
First, a report submitted to Texas UFO Sightings from the 18th:
what kind of like a falling star but it was the blue circular light it was gone in a few seconds but really I guess my view kind of got blocked out by a tree but it was there and it was gone... I need to know what this was... it was beautiful
And here are reports from the biggest event on July 23rd, as reported by 20+ witnesses between Texas UFO Sightings and AMSMeteors.org alone:
Bright red light which seemed to be falling to the ground. Caught it out of the corner of my eye and within about 3 seconds it changed from red to green with a yellow tail. Guessing it to be 8-10 ft in diameter by 12-14 ft in length. Oval shaped. It disappeared into the horizon traveling at a very high speed. my wife witnessed it as well. seen in the direction of the corner of 1464 and Old Richmond rd in Sugar Land TX yesterday 7-22-15 at about 8:45pm. Did not have a camera to get photo or video.
And the 24th:
Green ball of light moving very fast from west to east. Saw the same exact thing a week ago at about 3:30am from a near by location. Made no sound. Almost wrote it off as a meteor but had never seen one like that. Now seeing it again, it has peaked curiosity.
Supposedly, an observatory got the 23rd event on camera, but I can't confirm the origin just yet:
Did you see a fireball - or UFO - in Texas this month? Report your sighting or discuss it on Facebook! Seems to be a pretty active time right now.
