That sucks. I was passing through Arlington only an hour before you say it happened.
Strange thing is, I grew up in Euless, just north of Arlington. When I was in junior high, I'd say about 13 years ago, 2 friends and myself were
outside throwing a football back and forth. While attempting to catch one pitched up high I spotted a fireball shooting slowly across the sky. It
was huge and seemed close enough to the ground but pretty far. Lower than planes taking off from DFW Airport but way above the tree line. It looked
like a ball of something on fire, red/orange glow with a blue haze around it and a slight trail. I could actually see it burning flames. The two
kids I were with saw it too. It went passed the tree line and we couldn't see it anymore.
I have never seen anything like it since, not any videos on the internet that looked like it. From our vantage point, it was about the size of a
basketball. We were about 15 years old at the time, since I still live close enough to the area, in Richardson, and my parents still in Euless, I
have run into the two friends a few times and the first thing we say to each other is... "Remember that fireball".
Since then I have searched a little on the internet to see if anyone else may had seen it that day but not much luck.
To anyone from that area, we were off Pipeline Rd. close to American Way/FAA Blvd. Knob Hill Trailer Park to be exact.
