Did you see a flash in the sky?

HOUSTON - From KHOU TV and www.khou.com - People across Texas -- from Dallas to Houston -- reported seeing a huge "shooting star"-like object in the sky around 6:45 a.m. Friday.

At least one witness in Dallas reported hearing a boom with the fireball, which reportedly had a long trail behind it.


Some people said the object flashed from red to green before it disappeared. The light show only lasted a few seconds, witnesses said.


This morning's fog in southeast Texas made it difficult to capture on camera.


KHOU 11 News Meteorologist speculated the object may have been from the Geminids meteor shower, which takes place in December. These meteorites often appear to be slow moving, although the Geminids usually are best seen at its peak on Dec. 13 and 14.
