The Falling Stars At Night Are Big And Bright - - Deep In The Heart Of Texas

Early in the morning on Sunday, February 15, 2009, an inexplicable "fireball" careened across the expansive Texas skies. Federal Aviation Administration authorities have no explanation as to the object's nature or origin, but don't deny eye-witness reports. While authorities disregard any connections between this incident and the collision of US and Russian satellites earlier in the week, the FAA nonetheless issued a blanket warning to pilots on Saturday to be on the lookout for any debris that may re-enter the atmosphere.

And it does seem to be confirmed as a meteor: "And Preston Starr, observatory manager at the University of North Texas, said it probably was a meteor about the size of a pickup truck with the consistency of a chunk of concrete," according the the Associated Press.
