Photo from the American Meteor Society
Many witnesses saw a fireball shoot through the Texas sky yesterday evening, and they reported their sightings to the American Meteor Society.
The common theme was a flash of red, blue, and/or white light with a tail that seemed to trickle off into the night sky (there may have been debris from the event).
Is this a sign of more to come this afternoon, when Asteroid 2012 DA14 will swing by the Earth? (Yesterday, a meteor injured hundreds in Russia.)
PS, someone also witnessed a more mysterious UFO-like object on the same night in Carrolton, so they may be related!
You can read the full testimonies/descriptions on the AMS site, but here are some highlights:
looked like a smoke trail then it appeared to get super bright, explode, then disappear quickly - JL from Bryan
