Texans report fireball in sky, sonic booms


edition.cnn.com

CNN) -- Sonic booms and at least one fireball in the sky were reported in Texas on Sunday, less than a week after two satellites collided in space and a day after the Federal Aviation Administration asked U.S. pilots to watch for "falling space debris," authorities said.

the video was taken down. let's see if we can get it. from teh picture it looks like the crowds are running. that should mean it was fairly slow moving. i know asteroids can zip across the sky in less than a second or two. it must be a satellite for people to have enough time to start filming and try to make a run for it.

I posted a working link to the video in this earlier post on the same subject:

edit:
They are not running from the fireball, the video is of a road race and the fireball is seen in the background.

They are definitely not running from the fireball.

A local cameraman covering a marathon inadvertently filmed the fireball. I have not been able to view the video on CNN's website though at this time.

The Link on, The CNN website was taken down but you can find it on the video section of the site. The Object in the video seems to change direction near the very end. I understand that meteors and asteroids don’t change directions!
Could this be some sort of secret government spacecraft? I think the story about the two satellites that collided a week earlier may be a cover story.

Ah man, I missed it


Maybe it is a prelude to something bigger? I'll keep my fingers crossed. There are more and more reports of anomolies currently I have noticed!

But did not hear anything pertaining to this subject.

Hmmm.... One has to wonder why it seems to happen over Texas more often than expected, that things collide or explode in the sky, no? I live in the general Austin area and did not hear or see anything (though, admittedly inside working.. with windows open though.

I was living north of Dallas when the shuttle exploded overhead a few years ago. I happened to be outside grabbing the morning paper when I saw it. Scared the CRAP out of me! I could not believe what I was seeing in the brightness of the morning sun and ran in to grab my (then) newborn son and toddler... turned on the news and found out that we were quite alright.
*whew*

But, this is the 3rd occurance in the last, what.. 5 or 6 years (that we KNOW of)... all due to manmade technology, over texas. Nice.

Texas is freakin big. Reason one. Reason two, we have Johnson Space Center, plus I think at least two of the nation's l argest airports? I think the chances are just greater.

Has anyon seen the CNN video, I do believe that the object makes an attempt to pull out of the dive or has some shape other than round. The shape almost looks like wings or edges.

I wonder....




It streaked across the Central Texas sky Sunday morning in a bright yellow flash with a boom, leaving a trail of smoke. The FAA thought it might be from Russia

It turned out it wasn't debris from Tuesday's collision of two satellites over Russia after all, according to the Domestic Events Network of the Federal Aviation Administration.

My first post...WOO HOOO......

But it looks like it IS NOT satellite debris.......

Military officials say they dont know what it is, but its not satellite debris...

From the article


The U.S. Strategic Command said there was no connection to the sightings over Texas and Tuesday's collision of satellites from the U.S. and Russia. "There is no correlation between the debris from that collision and those reports of re-entry," said Maj. Regina Winchester, with STRATCOM.

I love it,
We cant keep track of thus sattelites, which is why they crashed,
but we can keep track of the thousands of peices of debree, and declare

'' this isnt parts of the sat's ''

It's not as farfetched as it sounds.

I think it's more that they know the general position of the debris cloud, and can rule out that it would have been over Texas at a given point in time.

Here is the new location of the CNN video.

2 days ago, there was a similar incident in Kentucky. It was widely reported on the internet, but not a hint in the MSM. Wonder how long this will go on...

Changes directions....sure buddy
..
. It's either a meteorite or some fallen space debris....either way there is nothing suspicious about it.....geeez you people are always reaching. I saw this on the news and made a comment about how someone on here would be reading too much into it...
. I think this is the third thread on this.

I wonder if this event had anything to do with this thread / news story...

Possible Satellite Debris Falling Across The Region


THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE IN JACKSON HAS RECEIVED CALLS THIS EVENING FROM THE PUBLIC CONCERNING POSSIBLE EXPLOSIONS AND...OR EARTHQUAKES ACROSS THE AREA. THE FEDERAL AVIATION ADMINISTRATION HAS REPORTED TO LOCAL LAW ENFORCEMENT THAT THESE EVENTS ARE BEING CAUSED BY FALLING SATELLITE DEBRIS. THESE PIECES OF DEBRIS HAVE BEEN CAUSING SONIC BOOMS...RESULTING IN THE VIBRATIONS BEING FELT BY SOME RESIDENTS...AS WELL AS FLASHES OF LIGHT ACROSS THE SKY. THE CLOUD OF DEBRIS IS LIKELY THE RESULT OF THE RECENT IN ORBIT COLLISION OF TWO SATELLITES ON TUESDAY...FEBRUARY 10TH WHEN KOSMOS 2251 CRASHED INTO IRIDIUM 33.
