This is probably as close as I will ever get to seeing a 'real UFO'.
I live in Austin, Texas. Yesterday, Sunday, I was jogging on a trail in southwest Austin and sat down for awhile to do some stretching. I was
scanning the sky as I was getting my wind back, and I saw a bright flashing fireball as I was staring to the northeast.
This flash/fireball lasted a quick couple of seconds, but was so impressive due its overall brightness in a sky already bright with early morning
Later yesterday I saw some local news reports of fireballs being seen up and down the I-35 corridor between Dallas and Austin. Later news scanning
noted that these sightings appeared to be related to the collision of the Russian and American satellites last week.
Anyway, just wanted to pass this along as it was a very neat phenomenon to witness, and it appears to have been related to actual space exploration
