Thelio C. of San Antonio witnessed a green light streak down from the sky, flash, and then disappear - he then heard a boom. The witness was shaken by the experience and are not sure what they saw. Fortunately you can read a detailed testimony that they submitted to the site:
Me and two friends were hanging out playing guitar and looking at the sky, when around 4am, we saw a strange green light coming down from the sky, it then flashed the whole city and disappeared. Some lights in the skyline went off for about 3 seconds after that.
A few nights prior, someone reported hearing loud booms in San Antonio but that was probably related to firework celebrations in the area. That same night, however, (the 13th) there was a pretty dramatic fireball reported in the mid west and some Texans caught a glimpse. Browse a few of those reports, which can be found in full on AMSMeteors.org, below:
I SAW A REMARKABLE OBJECT, WE ARE ASTRONOMERS AND OFTEN VIEW THE NIGHT SKIES, THIS WAS AN UNUSUAL EVENT. IT LOOKED LIKE A ROUND OBJECT AS BIG AS A FULL MOON WITH GREEN AND YELOW AND BLUISH COLOR. IT DID NOT HIT ANYWHERE AND LIT UP THE WHOLE SKY. TO ME IT WAS NOT A METEORITE, I KNOW WHAT A METEORITE LOOKS LIKE. WE ARE VIEWERS OF THE PERSEID METEOR SHOWER AND THIS WAS NOTHING LIKE A METEOR. IT ALSO LOOKED LIKE IT WAS SWIRLING.
Looks like meteor activity has picked up over the last few days and has been rather intense - so intense that even astronomers are questioning what they're looking at.
Have you seen a meteor-like sighting in Texas recently? Report it!
