Didn't see it but could be some kind of space junk falling back to earth

Either way, neat to see things like that

Supposedly a meteorite. Pretty cool if you got to see it.

Saw a bolide meteorite south of College Station back around 2013 while driving up hwy 6. Thought it was the end of the world it was so bright.

Didn’t see it, but it makes me think of the movie Armageddon (with Bruce Willis) and the whole what if scenario!

I saw one years ago that lit up the sky early one morning heading to hunt, later found out it was the space shuttle.

Saw it and it looked like part of it broke apart. We live halfway between Van and Lindale. It looked to me like it landed in Lindale. I one it didn’t but it looked close. Me and the wife both saw it and was kind of
confused as to what we saw at first. It looked to be to the NE of us.

My wife and I both saw it, we were driving through Dallas going east on 20 and it seemed to come down right in front of us. I agree, the largest one Iíve ever seen.
