A Houston resident looped me in on a very odd thing they saw in the sky a night before the massive fireball that swooped over the same city a night later. She'd like to remain anonymous, but her description is detailed and quite intriguing. She witnessed what appeared to be a shooting star at first, but was shocked to see it stop and then explode with light and disappear. Could this have been another meteor, or a fragment of the fireball that hit the skies the next day? Or could this be something else completely stranger? What's interesting is about a week later, a Dallas resident witnessed a meteor-like object in the sky, too, but it also stopped and changed directions.
my sister an i had just left the toby keith concert and it was about 1:00 am. we were heading back to her home north bound I-45 and we saw this light that my mind thought wow that looks like a star nebula. but i new that could not be it since you can not see those with the naked eye. so of course i thought well maybe a falling star but it was not that high in the sky. so we watched it for a few minutes and it went across the sky and stoped and then it looked like it turned or got brighter and then it was like this pocket opend in the sky and it went in and was gone .. okay i know that sounds crazy but it was so werid. i just am not sure how to explain it but i know that it was not like anything i have ever seen before. no we had not been drinking because we don't drink. so it was just werid and i have been looking to see if any one saw the same thing or had a different angle of it, it was just so crazy . i can't believe i saw that but at the same time i did see it so i have no idea . i have no pictures to show of it because i was just so stunned at it i did not think or great lets take a picture of it . it was just so crazy
