Thanks to the drought, which is causing lakes to dry up in Texas, authorities in Nacogdoches have uncovered what may be a part of the space shuttle Columbia in Lake Nacogdoches.

“The lower water level has exposed a larger than normal area on the northern side of the lake,” said NPD Sgt. Greg Sowell. “A large round object became visible, and it is very possible that it is part of Columbia.”

Officials with the Nacogdoches police took pictures of the object, described as being 4-feet in diameter and full of mud, and sent them off to NASA.

Possibly a punctured hydrogen tank. Remember there were pieces falling off of the flying flaming wreckage as it plummeted to Earth. Most of the footage is from Texas. It was traveling from east to west. I could certainly be wrong tho.

All trips to LEO go eastward, and that's the direction they reenter, opposite the earth's rotation.
