I discovered a new tweet about the Houston area/Louisiana fireball sighting. @Bigg_Swayy tweets that it was "like 8 objects flew by slowly flashing with a trail of light behind each one of them, I think it was a meteor shower."
But is it so simple? Even experts on this topic believe this wasn't your typical fireball, but a Chinese rocket re-entering orbit and fragmenting all over the sky for all to see. To add to the weirdness, there were lots of strange UFO reports that preceded this event - even of meteor-like objects. Also of interest is that there have been two reports out of Texas recently of shooting stars that stopped and changed directions.
The only hard evidence I have of this "fireball" is the video that a boat captain, who said he watched the event for a total of 3 to 4 minutes, was able to capture. See the screenshot below. Does this look like a meteor to you? And is it possible to watch a meteor for such a long duration of time? Meteor showers can last for several minutes, and even days, but I'm not sure how long a single fireball can be observed. Latest-UFO-Sightings.net chimed in with their opinion: No!
Here's the latest news report about the "meteor":
Along with a comment on the video, made by the YouTuber who uploaded it:
this light was in the sky for 3-4 minutes. this completely rules out the possibility of it being a meteor or any sort of space junk.
What do you think it was?
