First all the news reports stated it was from the sattelite collision. (How the heck do we know if there WAS a satellitte collission??).
Just saw on the news that it was NOT. The PTB are saying it was possibly a meteor about the size of a pickup truck that burned up in the atmosphere.
Why the sudden change in the story????
If it was not the satellites, then what happened to the sattellite debris??

Ok, this is kinda weird...I just saw a huge fireball in the sky about half an hour ago. Biggest I've ever seen, so I decided to go online and do a little research, and there on the front page of yahoo is a news story about the fireball in Texas.

It looked greenish and was very bright. Seemed to be moving slower than other meteorites I've seen. I didn't hear or feel anything though.
Anyone else in California see anything?

You seem to speak with an air of authority about this, so I'm wondering if you can explain how you reconcile your above statement, with the statement from Ron Dilulio, Professor/Astronomer of the University of North Texas, that the object "had to be the size of a pickup truck to remain visible" (Source) whilst space debris expert Hugh Lewis, calculated that the collision would "create an extra 10,000 debris shards varying in size from centimetres to tennis-ball sized" ?(Source)

Could you also tell us a bit about your credentials relating to your above post?
