It appears there was a lot of meteor/shooting star activity following the recent Russia meteor crash. Chalk this up to coincidence, an increased number of star gazers over the weekend, or something else. There are always the occasional shooting star or meteor sighting in Texas and all over the world, but there does seem to be an uptick this week.
Here are a few of the eyewitness accounts:
First there was a bright white trail and then toward the end it started to glow red to the end tip of the trail - Becky T
There was also a fireball sighting in Texas the same day as the meteor impact in Russia.
You guys remember all those strange sky sounds heard around the world? Well, they may be making a comeback in Texas. Someone heard a pretty terrifying growling, rumbling noise in the sky and shared the experience on the forum AboveTopSecret.com.
About the time i mentioned above i went outside to check the mail,the most terrifying sound i ever heard,a cross between a huge growling,roaring noise coming from the killeen area passing over head and removing to the lampasas area,it sounded like it was coming from the sky,i looked up but didn't see any jets ,contrails are anything. The most sicking feeling was in the pit of my stomach because i thought something was going to crash, when i did go back in i was shaking so bad,my daughter also heard this,but she was inside.Did anyone else hear this?It was not a plane are jet from killeen area sounding nothing like them,move my post if not in right area
Other Texans chimed in with similar experiences.
Just north of you here in Waco last night people heard a rumbling noise and it wasn't SpaceX in McGregor as people who live close to SpaceX posted that they did not hear anything. No one ever figured out where it came from
Since Killeen is near the Fort Hood army base, one theory is it's related to military activity, but this eyewitness says he's used to hearing that sort of thing, and this was nothing like it. To refresh your memory, here's one of the countless videos recording the strange sky sound phenomenon that's been happening all over the world during the past few years:
