It is not usual time of the year 2013 when meteor shower sightings are common. But the latest sighting of a fireball meteor has created excitement in Texas

The American Meteor Society received 55 reports of sightings a green ball of fire over the Texan sky. Sightings were reported from as far as Fort Worth to Dallas to Waxahachie, and also as far south as San Antonio and north to Meridian, Okla.

The ball of fire was observed at 9am in the evening. A Fort Worth observer described the light as “bright blue green-like lightning with what appeared to be a fire-like tail glowing red orange.” He said the light was “extremely close and lit up neighboring rooftops.”

A Waxahachie viewer said, “After it exploded, the meteor got brighter and didn’t burn out until it was close to the horizon.”

A bright meteor entering the earth’s atmosphere is nothing new and thousands occur everyday. However, most of them occur over oceans or uninhabited places. Many are also masked by daylight and those happening at night go unnoticed as most are asleep.

The very next morning at 5:56 a.m., Monday, six reports of another fireball sighting came from Austin and San Angelo.
