A mysterious bright light was seen streaking across the sky overnight, but what was it?🌠



HOUSTON – Overnight, our dark sky was lit up with what appeared to be a bright light streaking across the night sky. People throughout Texas up into Indiana reported seeing this streak of light– a suspected fireball.

If you were up late Sunday night, you might have seen one streaking across the sky.

Video was captured from a KPRC 2 viewer’s home security system at a Magnolia residence at 10:23 p.m. In the video, you can see the fireball appear on the top left of the screen, followed by a flash before it continues to streak across the night sky.

A photo was by Beth Wilson. She says she was lying outside stargazing and was going to take a picture of the sky when the fireball came flying right over her.

A fireball is a meteor larger and brighter than normal, according to the American Meteor Society, which received more than 200 reports and videos displaying a fireball event that occurred over Indiana and surrounding states Sunday evening. The event was mainly seen in Texas.

The trajectory shows the fireball entered the atmosphere over Cistern, Texas. Its flight ended just a few miles west of Austin. People along the flight path say they a delayed sonic boom, which indicates meteorites from this fireball might have survived the trip down to earth, according to scientists. Any meteorites found will likely be small fragments left over from the fireball.

The next meteor shower will occur on the night of August 12 and 13.
