"Strangest Thing I've Ever Seen Besides the Marfa lights" - Shooting STar or UFO? in Pflugerville
The month of February is usually a month of meteors; 2013 saw more than normal, however, and 2014 followed the same trend.
So it's not much of a surprise that over in Pflugerville, a TUS reader spotted a shooting star the day before Valentines Day. However, what was a surprise, was how it behaved - stopping in mid air, turning and shooting off.
So, maybe this wasn't a shooting star after all. Read the testimony yourself and be the judge:
As I was driving to Dallas from Paris, a falling star cought my eye. I looked up to see that the rate of speed was slower than the typical falling star, then it instantly stopped and shot off at a 45 degree angle. The pattern of it's flight was that of a check mark drawn backwards, starting with the tail end and finishing with the short end. It was the strangest thing I've ever seen besides the Marfa lights years ago. I wanted to report this in case someone else saw something similar.

I think I saw the same thing and I am in Round Rock which is next to Pflugerville. I was outside taking out the garbage in the late evening and looked up to see a shooting star going from the north to south. I watched it thinking it was too slow for a meteorite but too fast & bright for a satellite or the ISS. What surprised me is it stopped suddenly a little south of the zenith and shot off really fast to the west.Never saw a meteorite do that before!
